1. Know the definition of Fluid; No-Slip Condition; Density; Specific Volume; Continuum; Shear Stress; Viscosity; Kinematic Viscosity; Bulk Modulus; Specific Gravity (SG); Steady Flow; Specific Weight; Newtonian Fluid; Non-Newtonian Fluid; Apparent Viscosity 2. Use the bulk modulus to calculate the change in volume for liquids and gases. 3. Calculate the apparent viscosity for non-Newtonian fluids. 4. Use Newton’s Law of Viscosity to calculate viscous shear forces. 5. Convert units of physical quantities between SI, British Gravitational, and English Engineering. 6. Convert from absolute pressure to gage pressure or vacuum pressure. 7. Use the ideal gas law to calculate properties of ideal gases. 8. Be able to derive the hydrostatic equation starting from the Navier Stokes equation. Be able to interpret the basic vector equation of fluid statics and indicate the physical significance of each term. 9. Be able to derive the atmosphere equation using given atmospheric properties from N-S. 10.Be able to calculate gage and absolute pressures, including conversions from pressure head. 11.Be able to calculate pressure differences using a manometer. 12.Be able to calculate pressure variation using a compressible fluid. 13.Be able to calculate the forces in a hydraulic system. 14.Be able to calculate the resultant hydrostatic force on an inclined plane surface. In solving these problems, know how to calculate the center of pressure using the moments of inertia on the attached sheet. 15.Be able to use free body diagrams to calculate the net moment on a surface experiencing a hydrostatic force. 16.Be able to calculate the resultant hydrostatic force on a curved surface, including the ability to find the center of pressure and the resultant moments. 17.Be able to calculate the buoyancy force and show under what conditions the buoyancy force contributes to the stability of surface ships. 18.Be able to calculate the net forces on a control volume using the linear momentum equation when the control volume is stationary.
