Units of Chapter 15 Density Pressure Static Equilibrium in fluids Archimedes' Principle and Buoyancy Fluid Flow and Continuity Bernoulli's Equation
Density Definition of fluid: it is a substance that can readily flow from place to place, and take the shape of a container rather than retain a shape of their own. Examples: gases and liquids
The pressure in fluid acts equally in all directions, and acts at right angles to any surface, so we don’t usually notice it.
Static equilibrium in fluids: Pressure and depth The increased pressure as an object descends through a fluid is due to the increasing mass of the fluid above it.
Static equilibrium in fluids: Pressure and depth
Archimedes’ principle and buoyancy A fluid exerts a net upward force on any object it surrounds, called the buoyant force. the buoyant force is due to the increased pressure at the bottom of the object compared to the top.
Archimedes’ principle and buoyancy
Fluid flow and continuity Continuity tells us that whatever the volume of fluid in a pipe passing a particular point per second, the same volume must pass every other point in a second. The fluid is not accumulating or vanishing along the way. This means that where the pipe is narrower, the flow is faster.
Fluid flow and continuity Most gases are easily compressible; most liquids are not. Therefore, the density of a liquid may be treated as constant, but not that of a gas. 3.3.
Bernoulli’s equation The Bernoulli’s Equation is the work – energy theorem applied to fluids. The result is a relation between the pressure of a fluid, its speed, and its height. If there is no change in height, the Bernoulli’s equation becomes:
Exercise 15-4 page 520 There is a difference in height, so we apply the Bernoulli’s equation (the subscript (1) for the bottom and (2) for the top:
