Show that if a slab is rotating about a fixed axis perpendicular to the slab and passing through its mass center G, the angular momentum is the same when computed about any other point P

Lecture 11: Fluids/Thermodynamics Outcomes Explain the different pressures and calculate o Atmospheric pressure o Absolute pressure o Gauge pressure o Hydrostatic pressure o Vacuum pressure Pressure Normal force exerted per unit area by a fluid Where o P = pressure (scalar) o F = normal force (vector) o A = area (vector!) SI units: N/m = Pascal [Pa] US: lb fin = psi Also bar, mm Hg, in Hg, torr (see unit conversion sheet) Pressure Example 1 Pressure - Types & Relationships Atmospheric [P atm - pressure exerted at a certain location o Standard atmospheric pressure = 1 atm (at sea level)
