This is a Level-II Mechanics of Fluids course demanding the knowledge you acquired in thefirst-year fluid and mathematics courses. In particular, the following topics are relevant andshould be reviewed if you have already forgotten the stuffs:-1) Properties of fluid (density, viscosity);2) Principles of fluid statics;3) Fluid dynamics by control volume approach
energy equation (or Bernoulli equation)
head, head loss4)
Differentiation and integration;5) Vector differential calculus (grad, div, curl, Gauss theorem, etc);
