2 Buoyant Force A buoyant force is defined as the upward force that is produced on a body that is totally or partially submerged in a fluid.Fb= ϒ * VdVd is the displacement fluid volume
3 If the body is totally submerged, the displaced volume is the volume of the body. If a body is partially submerged, the displaced volume is the portion of the volume that is submerged. For a fluid of uniform density, the line of action of the buoyant force passes through the centroid of the displaced volume.

5 ExampleA metal part (object 2) is hanging by a thin cord from a floating wood block (object 1). The woodblock has a specific gravity S1 = 0.3 and dimensions of 50 × 50 × 10 mm. The metal part has a volume of 6600 mm3. Find the mass m2 of the metal part and the tension T in the cord.
9 Fluid Motion Flow pattern is consisted of stream lines. The local velocity vector is tangent to the streamline at every point along the line.
10 Uniform and Non uniform Uniform Flowthe velocity does not change along a fluid path.Non uniform Flowthe velocity changes along a fluid path.
11 Steady and Unsteady Steady Flow In a steady flow the velocity at a given point on a fluid path does not change with timeUnsteady FlowIn a unsteady flow the velocity at a given point on a fluid path changes with time
12 Laminar and TurbulentLaminar flow fluid layers move smoothly with respect to each other. (Low Velocity)Turbulent flow is an unsteady flow characterized by intense cross-stream mixing.(High Velocity)
18 ExampleA column water in a vertical tube is being accelerated by a piston in the vertical direction at 100 m/s2.The depth of the water column is 10 cm. Find the gage pressure on the piston. The water density is 1000 kg/m3.
20 ExampleThe tank on a trailer truck is filled completely with gasoline, which has a specific weight of 42 lbf/ft3 (6.60 kN/m3). The truck is decelerating at a rate of 10 ft/s2 (3.05 m/s2).(a) If the tank on the trailer is 20 ft (6.1 m) long and if the pressure at the top rear end of the tank is atmospheric, what is the pressure at the top front?(b) If the tank is 6 ft (1.83 m) high, what is the maximum pressure in the tank?
