What is the branch of fluid mechanics concerned with the relations between velocities, accelerations, and forces exerted on fluids in motion?

Hydrodynamics

What is the study of mechanics of fluids at rest called?

Fluid Statics

What is an ideal or perfect fluid?

One in which there is no friction nor viscosity

What kind of fluids have little resistance to change in form or volume and occupy all the space in which they are contained?

Gases

What is a closed system in thermodynamics?

A system in which working substance does not cross its boundaries but energy crosses its boundaries

What is the difference between fluid statics and fluid kinematics?

Fluid Statics deals with the mechanics of fluids at rest, while Fluid Kinematics deals with velocities and streamlines without considering forces or energy.

Explain the concept of hydrodynamics in fluid mechanics.

Hydrodynamics is concerned with the relations between velocities, accelerations, and the forces exerted on fluids in motion.

What are the defining characteristics of fluids, as described in the text?

Fluids are substances capable of flowing, possess particles that easily move and change their relative position without mass separation, and offer practically no resistance to change in form.

How does fluid mechanics differ from the mechanics of solids?

Fluid mechanics deals with the mechanics of liquids and gases, while the mechanics of solids focus on solid materials.

What is the branch of fluid mechanics that deals with the study of mechanics of fluids at rest?

Fluid Statics

Define fluids based on the characteristics described in the text.

Substances capable of flowing, with particles that easily move and change their relative position without separation of mass, and offering practically no resistance to change in form.

What is the branch of fluid mechanics concerned with the relations between velocities, accelerations, and forces exerted on fluids in motion?

Hydrodynamics

Name one of the characteristics of fluids described in the text.

Fluids possess particles which easily move and change their relative position without separation of the mass.

Study Notes

Fluid Mechanics

  • Branch of fluid mechanics concerned with relations between velocities, accelerations, and forces exerted on fluids in motion: fluid dynamics
  • Study of mechanics of fluids at rest: fluid statics
  • Ideal or perfect fluid: a fluid with zero viscosity, incompressible, and inviscid

Characteristics of Fluids

  • Occupy all the space in which they are contained
  • Show little resistance to change in form or volume
  • Examples: liquids and gases

Thermodynamics

  • Closed system: a system that does not exchange matter with its surroundings

Fluid Statics and Fluid Kinematics

  • Fluid statics: study of fluids at rest
  • Fluid kinematics: study of fluids in motion

Hydrodynamics

  • Study of the mechanics of fluids in motion
  • Concerned with the relations between velocities, accelerations, and forces exerted on fluids in motion

Difference from Solids

  • Fluid mechanics differs from the mechanics of solids due to the ability of fluids to flow and change shape in response to forces

Test your knowledge of the fundamental principles and branches of fluid mechanics, including fluid statics, fluid kinematics, and hydrodynamics.
