10

Buoyancy

If a body is fully or partially immersed in a fluid, it experiences an upward force due to the fluid called buoyant force.

11

An object with a mass of 150 kg and a volume of 0.75 m3 is floating in ethyl alcohol, whose density is 800 kg/m3. What fraction of the object’s volume is above the surface of the fluid?

12

Volume Flow Rate

Volume of fluid that passes through a particular point per unit of time.

New cards

13

Formula for volume flow rate

F = Av

A = cross-sectional area

v=flow speed

New cards

14

Continuity equation

The density of fluid is constant. Thus, A1V1 = A2V2.

A circular pipe of non-uniform diameter carries water. At one point in the pipe, the radius is 2 cm and the flow speed is 6m/s. What is the flow speed at a point where the pipe constricts to a radius of 1 cm?

New cards

16

Bernoulli’s effect

At comparable heights, the pressure is lower where the flow speed is greater.

Explain how airflow affects the airplane wing in the image and helps it fly.

The air on the bottom has greater pressure and pushes up on the wing, giving the airplane lift force.
