Fluids

Substances which can flow.

New cards
2

Density

Mass per unit volume of a substance

New cards
3

S.I. Units of Density

kg/m³

New cards
4

CGS unit of density

g/cc

New cards
5

Pressure

Magnitude of normal force acting per unit area

New cards
6

S.I. Units of Pressure

Pascal

New cards
7

Hydrostatic pressure

Pressure due to liquid

New cards
8

Factors that hydrostatic pressure depends on

Density of liquid and depth below the surface

New cards
9

What principle does buoyancy use?

Archimedes Principle

New cards
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.

New cards
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?

New cards
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.

New cards
15

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.

New cards
17

Bernoulli’s Equation

New cards
18

Buoyancy diagram for object floating in liquid.

New cards
19

Practical units for pressure

atm, bar, torr

New cards
20

A vertical column made of cement has a base area of 0.5 m2. If its height is 2 m, and the density of cement is 3000 kg/m3, how much pressure does this column exert on the ground?

New cards
21

SI unit for Volume Flow Rate

m³/s

New cards
22

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 volume flow rate?

New cards
23

What does Bernoulli’s Equation assume for the conservation of energy in fluids?

The fluid is incompressible.

The fluid’s viscosity is negligible.

The fluid is streamlined.

New cards
24

Bernoulli’s Equation

25

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.
