1 Materials Fluids and Fluid Flow 1 Fluids and Fluid Flow 2
Force and Extension Stress, Strain, and the Young Modulus

2 Turbulent + Laminar Flow
Laminar /Streamline Flow– layers do not cross each others paths. Occurs at lower speeds. Turbulent Flow – layers cross and mix. Occurs at higher speeds.

3 Viscous Drag Force The force of friction caused by a flowing fluid
Is in the opposite direction to movement

4 Upthrust Force Upthrust is a force that acts vertically upwards on an object in a fluid Upthrust = weight of fluid displaced

5 Density A measure of how close-packed the particles are in a substance. EG: gases are much less dense than solids and liquids because their particles are more widespread.

6 Terminal Velocity As an object falls it’s speed increases. The drag on it will also increase. Eventually a speed is reached where the drag force = the weight. As there is no net force on the object, the acceleration will be zero.

7 Viscosity The higher the viscosity of a fluid, the slower it flows.
Viscosities of most fluids decrease as the temperature increases. Fluids generally flow faster if they are hotter.

8 Stokes’ Law Calculates the drag force on a sphere as it travels through a fluid. F = viscous drag force acting on the sphere r = radius of the sphere n = viscosity of the fluid v = velocity of sphere

9 ALL Forces on a Falling Sphere
Stokes’ Law + Upthrust = Weight

10 Hooke’s Law The extension of a sample of material is directly proportional to the force applied. Hooke’s Law does not apply to all materials k = stiffness = the gradient = F/x

11 Force v Extension/Compression Graphs
Limit of Proportionality – The point beyond which force is no longer directly proportional to extension (line is no longer straight) Elastic Limit – This is when the force is taken away, the material no longer goes back to its original length Yield Point – Material shows a greater increase in extension for a given increase in force Ultimate Tensile Stress – The maximum stress that the material can withstand Breaking Stress – the point at which the material breaks



14 Ultimate Tensile Strength: the maximum stress (force) a material can withstand.
Breaking Stress: the stress at which the material breaks. Can be the same as UTS.

15 Stress and Strain Stress (N/m2) Strain (no units)
= Force (N) / Area (m2) Strain (no units) = Extension (m) / Original Length (m)

16 Young Modulus YM = FL/EA
YM = Stress/Strain YM = (F/A)/(E/L) YM = FL/EA YM = the gradient of a stress/strain graph The greater the YM (the steeper the gradient) the stiffer the material. Ie: the less it stretches for a given force.

17 Elastic and Plastic Deformation
At point A, Masses (Force) are unloaded from the material. Plastic deformation has occurred as the material has not gone back to it’s original length.

18 Material Characteristics
Brittle: Breaks suddenly without deforming plastically. Follows Hooke’s Law until it snaps. Glass. Ductile: Undergos plastic deformation by being pulled into wire. Retains strength. Copper. Malleable: Undergos plastic deformation by being hammered or rolled into shape. Loses strength. Gold. Hard: Resist plastic deformation by compression or scratching rather than stretching. Diamond. Stiff: Measure of how much a material stretches for a given force. Bamboo. Tough: Measure of the amount of energy a material can absorb before it breaks. Toffee.

19 Elastic Strain Energy Plastically deformed material:
E = ½ x Force x Extension (Similar to W=Fs) Elastically deformed material: E = area under force/extension graph
