Chapter 14 – Fluid Mechanics fluid—a collection of molecules that are randomly arranged and held together by weak cohesive forces and by forces exerted by the walls of a container. Includes liquids and gases 14.1 – Pressure - The force exerted by a static fluid on an object is always perpendicular to the surfaces of the object F - pressure—a scalar quantity: P= A - pascal—SI unit of pressure: 1 Pa = 1 N/m 2 14.2 – Variation of Pressure with Depth - water pressure increases with depth; atmospheric pressure decreases with height - density—mass per unit volume P=P +ρgh 0 pressure varies with depth, h. If the container is open, P is atmospheric pressure: P = 1.00 atm = 5 0 0 1.013*10 Pa *Pressure at a given depth is the same, regardless of the shape of the container Pascal’s Law—a change in the pressure applied to a fluid is transmitted undiminished to every point of the fluid and to the walls of the container (see hydraulic press in notes) 14.3 – Pressure Measurements barometric pressure is the current local pressure of the atmosphere A barometer uses a tube of mercury closed at one end to measure pressure: 1 atm = 0.760 m An open-tube manometer uses a U-shaped tube and differences in height to measure absolute pressure (the pressure P) and gauge pressure (the difference P- P ) 0 14.4 – Buoyant Forces and Archimedes’s Principle buoyant force—the upward force exerted by a fluid on any immersed object Archimedes’s Principle—the magnitude of the buoyant force on an object always equals the weight of the fluid displaced by the object B=ρ gV fluid disp  buoyant force. **Buoyant force is exerted by the fluid and doesn’t depend on the properties of the object except its volume Totally Submerged Object: - the volume of the displaced fluid equals the volume of the object, so: B=ρ fluid obj B−F =gρ fluid)obj obj - the net force is: - so, if the density of the object is less than the fluid, the object accelerates upward; if the density of the object is greater, the object sinks; if the densities are the same, the net force is zero and the object remains in equilibrium - **the direction of motion of the object is determined only by the densities Floating Object: - ρobj fluidand the object is in static equilibrium, floating on the fluid (partially submerged) - the volume of the displaced fluid is the volume of the part submerged, so: B=ρ fluid disp V disp ρobj - = V obj ρ fluid 14.5 – Fluid Dynamics flow can be characterized as one of two types: - steady or laminar – each particle follows a smooth path and the paths never cross - turbulent – irregular flow above a certain critical speed viscosity—describes the degree of internal friction ideal fluid flow: - nonviscous—internal friction is neglected so there is no viscous force - steady—(laminar) all particles passing through a point have the same velocity - incompressible—density is constant - irrotational—no angular momentum about any point streamline—the path taken by a fluid particle under steady flow; velocity is tangent to the streamline A1v1=A v2 2onstant  equation of continuity for fluids 14.6 – Bernoulli’s Equation 1 P+ ρv +ρgy=constant Bernoulli’s equation – the pressure of a fluid 2 decreases as the speed and/or elevation increase 14.7 – Other Applications of Fluid Dynamics lift—the vertical component of the force the airstream exerts on a wing - depends on factors including speed, area, curvature, angle: the curvature causes lower pressure above the wing and the pressure different assists with lift; too big an angle between the wing and the horizontal increases turbulent flow above the wing and reduces lift - lift is also influenced by shape, orientation, spinning motion, texture of an object drag—the horizontal component of the force the airstream exerts on a wing
