0580160 Chapter 1 Professor Fred Stern Fall 2007 6 Continuum Hypothesis Fluids are composed of molecules in constant motion and collosion however in most cases molecular motion can be disregarded and the assumption is made that the uid behaves as a continuum ie the number of molecules Within the smallest region of interest a point are suf cient that all uid properties are point functions single

is more convenient since we are seldom interested in simultaneous time history of individual uid particles but rather time history of uid motion and E M in xed regions in space control volumes However three fundamental laws of uid mechanics ie conservation of mass momentum and energy are formulated for systems ie particles and not control volumes ie regions and therefore must be converted om system

of matter in which properties are assumed uniform in space and time Thermodynamic system xed mass separated from surroundings by boundary through which heat and work are exchanged but not mass Properties are state functions whereas heat and work are path functions A classical thermodynamic system is assumed static whereas uids are often in motion however if the relaxation time time it takes material to adjust to a new state is small compared to the time scale of uid motion an assumption is made that thermodynamic properties are point functions and that laws and state relations of static equilibrium thermodynamics are valid In gases and liquids at normal pressure relaxation time is very small hence only a few molecular collisions are needed for adjustment Exceptions are rare ed gases chemically reacting ows sudden changes such as shock waves etc For singlephase pure substances only two properties are independent and all others follow through equations of state which are determined experimentally or theoretically Some mixtures such as air can also be 0580160 Chapter 1 Professor Fred Stern Fall 2007 21 considered a pure substance Whereas others such as salt water cannot and

liquids and gases form an interface across which there is a discontinuity in density The interface behaves like a stretched membrane under tension The tension originates due to strong intermolecular cohesive forces in the liquid that are unbalanced at the interface due to loss of neighbors resulting in surface tension per unit length 6 coef cient of surface tension Nm Line force FCS 6L where L
