When curved surface is below liquid, vertical resultant force is equal to vertical hydrostatic force plus weight of fluid block. When curved surface is above liquid, vertical resultant force is equal to vertical hydrostatic force minus weight of fluid block. 3.1 CV Analysis – Conversion of Mass Determine ρ2 as a function of ρ1 , device geometry, and velocities at inlet and outlet. 1.

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
