1 Density, ρ= mass/unitvolume –Slugs/ft3;kg/m3
• Specific volume (volume per unit mass), • Specific weight= weight/volume (lb/ft3; N/m3) • Specific Gravity = density of the fluid/density of water

2 Example 1 The specific gravity of mercury at 80 0C is
13.4. Determine its density and specific weight at this temperature in both BG and SI units,

4 Ideal/Perfect Gas Law /Equation of State
• Gases are highly compressible, gas density changes with pressure and temperature as, where p is the absolute pressure, ρ the density, T is absolute temperature, and R is gas constant Pressure units: lb/ft2 (psf) ; lb/in2 (psi); N/m2 (Pa) Standard sea-level atmospheric pressure – 14.7 psi; kPa Gage pressure + atmospheric pressure = absolute pressure

5 Ts are expressed in Kelvin or Rankine Lisa Vink, 1/11/2007
R is different for each gas and is determined from R=Ru/M where Ru is the universal gas constant, Ru=8.314 kJ/kmol.K=1.986 Btu/lbmol. R LV5 Ts are expressed in Kelvin or Rankine Lisa Vink, 1/11/2007

8 Example 3 Determine the density, specific gravity and mass of the air in a room whose dimensions are 4 m x 5 m x 6 m at 100 kPa and 25 C

9 Viscosity Viscosity is a measure of a fluid's resistance to flow.
It describes the internal friction of a moving fluid. A fluid with large viscosity resists motion because its molecular makeup gives it a lot of internal friction. • A fluid with low viscosity flows easily because its molecular makeup results in very little friction when it is in motion.


11 Fluid motion can cause shearing stresses
