FLUID MECHANICS

DEFINITION OF FLUID

The term fluid refers to a substance that can flow and does not have a shape of its own. For

example liquid and gases.

Fluid includes property (A) Density (B) Viscosity (C) Bulk modulus of elasticity (D) pressure

(E) specific gravity

PRESSURE IN A FLUID

The pressure p is defined as the magnitude of the normal force acting on a unit surface area.

P =

F

A

The pressure is a scalar quantity. This is because hydrostatic pressure is transmitted equally in

all directions when force is applied, which shows that a definite direction is not associated with

pressure.

Thrust. The total force exerted by a liquid on any surface in contact with it is called thrust of the liquid.

Note :

The normal force exerted by liquid at rest on a given surface in contact with it is called thrust of liquid on that

surface.

The normal force (or thrust) exerted by liquid at rest per unit area of the surface in contact with it, is called

pressure of liquid or hydrostatic pressure.

If F be the normal force acting on a surface of area A in contact with liquid, then pressure exerted by liquid on

this surface is P = F/A

(1) Units : N / m2 or Pascal (S.I) and Dyne/cm2 (C.G.S)

(2) Dimension : (P) =

[F] [MLT 2 ]

[ML1T 2 ]

[A]

[L ]

(3) At a point pressure acts in all directions and a definite direction is not associated with it. So pressure is

a tensor quantity.

(4) Atmospheric pressure : The gaseous envelope surrounding the earth is called the earth's atmosphere and

the pressure exerted by the atmosphere is called atmospheric pressure its value on the surface of the earth

at sea level is nearly 1.013 105 N/m2 or Pascal in S.I. other practical units of pressure are atmosphere, bar

and torr (mm of Hg)

1 atm = 1.01 105 Pa = 1.01 bar = 760 torr

The atmospheric pressure is maximum at the surface of earth and goes on decreasing as we move up into

the earth's

(5) If P0 is the atmospheric pressure then for a point at depth h below the surface of a liquid of density .

hydrostatic pressure P is given by P = P0 + hg.

RESONANCE

AIEEE-FLUID MECHANICS - 1

(6) Hydrostatic pressure depends on the depth of the point below the surface (h). nature of liquid () and

acceleration due to gravity (g) while it is independent of the amount of liquid, shape of the container or crosssectional area considered. So if a given liquid is filled in vessels of different shapes to same height, the

pressure at the base in each vessel's will be the same, though the volume or weight of the liquid in different

vessels will be different.

(7) In a liquid at same level, the pressure will be same at all points, if not, due to pressure difference the liquid

cannot be at rest. This is why the height of liquid is the same in vessels of different shapes containing

different amounts of the same liquid at rest when they are in communication with each other.

(8) Gauge pressure : The pressure difference between hydrostatic pressure P and atmospheric pressure P0

is called gauge pressure.

Railway tracks are laid on large sized wooden or iron sleepers. This is because the weight (force)

of the train is spread over a large area of the sleeper. This reduces the pressure acting on the

ground and hence prevents the yielding of ground under the weight of the train.

A sharp knife is more effective in cutting the objects than a blunt knife.

The pressure exerted = Force/area. The sharp knife transmits force over a small area as compared to the blunt knife. Hence the pressure exerted in case of sharp knife is more than in case of

blunt knife.

A camel walks easily on sand but a man cannot inspite of the fact that a camel is much heavier

than man.

This is because the area of camels feet is large as compared to mans feet. So the pressure

exerted by camel on the sand is very small as compared to the pressure exerted by man. Due to

large pressure, sand under the feet of man yields and hence he cannot walk easily on sand.

if the pressure in a liquid is changed at a particular, point the change is transmitted to the entire

liquid without being diminished in magnitude. In the above case if P a is increased by some amount

than P must increase to maintained the difference (P P a) = hg. This is Pascals Law which

states that Hydraulic lift is common application of Pascals Law.

Density

In a fluid, at a point, density is defined as :

m dm

V 0 V

dV

(1) In case of homogenous isotropic substance, it has no directional properties, so is a scalar.

(2) It has dimensions (ML3) and S.I. unit kg/m3 while C.G.S. unit g/cc with 1g /cc = 103 kg/m3

(3) Density of substance means the rotio of mass of substance to the means the ratio of mass of a body to

the volume of the body. So for a solid body.

Density of body = Density of substance

While for a hollow body, density of body is lesser than that of substance [As Vbody > Vsub.]

(4) When immiscible liquids of different densities are poured in a container, the liquid of highest density will

be at the bottom while that of lowest density at the top and interfaces will be plane.

(5) Sometimes instead of density we use the term relative density or specific gravity which is defined as :

= lim

Density of body

RD = Density of water

(6) If m1 mass of liquid of density 1 and m2 mass of density 2 are mixed. then as

m = m1 + m2 and V = (m1 / 1) + (m2 / 2)

[As V = m/]

(7) If V1 volume of liquid of density 1 and V2 volume of liquid of density 2 are mixed, then as

m = 1V1 + 2V2 and V = V1 + V2

[As = m/V]

If V1 = V2 = V 1(1 + 2 )/2 = Arithmetic Mean

Hydraulic Brake.

Hydraulic brake system is used in automobiles to retard the motion.

Pressure is directly proportional to depth and by applying pascals law it can be seen that pressure is independent of the size and shape of the containing vessel. (In all the three cases the

heights are same).

Definition.

The atmospheric pressure at any point is numerically equal to the weight of a column of air of unit

cross-sectional area extending from that point to the top of the atmosphere.

At 0C, density of mercury = 13.595 g cm 3 , and at sea level, g = 980.66 cm s 2

Now P = hg.

Atmospheric pressure = 76 13.595 980.66 dyne cm 2 = 1.013 10 5 N-m 2 (p a)

Height of Atmosphere

The standard atmospheric pressure is 1.013 10 5 Pa (N m 2 ). If the atmosphere of earth has a

uniform density = 1.30 kg m 3 , then the height h of the air column which exerts the standard

atmospheric pressure is given by

hg = 1.013 10 5

In fact, density of air is not constant but decreases with height. The density becomes half at

which there is no atmosphere. Anyhow the atmosphere extends upto 1200 km. This limit is considered for all practical purposes.

Mercury Barometer.

Open-tube manometer is used to measure the pressure gauge. W hen equilibrium is reached, the

pressure at the bottom of left limb is equal to the pressure at the bottom of right limb.

i.e. p + y1 g = p a + y2 g

p p a = g (y2 y1) = gy

p p a = g (y2 y1) = gy

p = absolute pressure, p p a = gauge pressure.

Thus, knowing y and (density of liquid), we can measure the gauge pressure.

weight which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body.

AIEEE-FLUID MECHANICS - 10

This relationship is valid in accelerating fluid also. Thus, the force acting on the body are :

(i) its weight Mg which acts downward and

(ii) net upward thrust on the body or the buoyant force (mg)

Hence the apparent weight of the body = Mg mg = weight of the body weight of the displaced liquid.

Or Actual W eight of body Apparent weight of body = weight of the liquid displaced.

The point through which the upward thrust or the buoyant force acts when the body is immersed

in the liquid is called its centre of buoyancy. This will coincide with the centre of gravity if the solid

body is homogeneous. On the other hand if the body is not homogeneous, then the centre of

gravity may not lie on the line of the upward thrust and hence there may be a torque that causes

rotation in the body.

If the centre of gravity of the body and the centre of buoyancy lie on the same straight line, the

body is in equilibrium.

If the centre of gravity of the body does not coincide with the centre of buoyancy (i.e., the line of

upthrust), then torque acts on the body. This torque causes the rotational motion of the body.

Floatation

1.

Translatory equilibrium : When an body of density p and volume V is immersed in a liquid of density , the

forces acting on the body are

Weight of body W = mg = Vg, acting vertically downwards through centre of gravity of the body.

Upthrust force = Vg acting vertical upwards through the centre of gravity of the displaced liquid i.e., centre

of buoyancy.

(ii) In case of floating as weight of body = upthrust

So W App = Actual weight upthrust = 0

(iii) In case of floating Vg = Ving

So the equilibrium of floating bodies is unaffected by variations in g though both thrust and weight depend on g.

RESONANCE

AIEEE-FLUID MECHANICS - 11

(2) Rotatory Equilibrium : When a floating body is slightly tied from equilibrium position, the centre of

buoyancy B shift. The vertical line passing through the new ecntre of buoyancy B' and initial vertical line meet

at a point M called meta - centre. If the meta-centre M is above the centre of gravity the couple due to forces

at G (weight of body W) and at B' (upthrust) tends to bring the body back body the meta-centre must always

be higher then the centre of gravity of the body.

However, if meta-centre goes CG, the couple due to forces at G and B' tends to topple the floating body.

That is why a wooden log cannot be made to float vertical in water or a boat is likely to capsize if the sitting

passengers stand on it. In these situations CG becomes higher than MG and so the body will topple if

slightly tilted.

Example 25. A cubical block of wood of edge 3 cm floats in water. The lower

surface of the cube just touches the free end of a vertical spring

fixed at the bottom of the pot. Find the maximum weight that can be

put on the block without wetting it. Density of wood = 800 kg/m 3 and

spring constant of the spring = 50 N/m. Take g = 10 m/s 2.

Solution :

The specific gravity of the block = 0.8. Hence the height inside water = 3 cm 0.8 = 2.4

cm. The height outside ater = 3 cm 2.4 = 0.6 cm. Suppose the maximum weight that can

be put without wetting it is W. The block in this case is completely immersed in the water.

The volume of the displaced water

= volume of the block = 27 10 6 m 3.

Hence, the force of buoyancy

= (27 10 6 m 3) 1(1000 kg/m3) (10 m/s 2) = 0.27 N.

The spring is compressed by 0.6 cm and hence the upward force exerted by the spring

= 50 N/m 0.6 cm = 0.3 N.

The force of buoyancy and the spring force taken together balance the weight of the block

plus the weight W put on the block. The weight of the block is

W = (27 10 6 m) (800 kg/m 3) (10 m/s 2) = 0.22 N.

Thus, W = 0.27 N + 0.3 N 0.22 N

= 0.35 N.

The path taken by a particle in flowing fluid is called its line of flow. In the case of steady flow all

the particles passing through a given point follow the same path and hence we have a unique line

of flow passing through a given point which is also called streamline.

A tangent at any point on the stream line gives the direction of the velocity of the fluid particle at

that point.

Two steamlines never intersect each other.

Laminar flow : If the liquid flows over a horizontal surface in the form of layers of different velocities, then the flow of liquid is called Laminar flow. The particle of one layer do not go to another

layer. In general, Laminar flow is a streamline flow.

Turbulent Flow : The flow of fluid in which velocity of all particles crossing a given point is not

same and the motion of the fluid becomes disorderly or irregular is called turbulent flow.

RE YN OL D S N U MB E R

According to Reynold, the critical velocity (v c ) of a liquid flowing through a long narrow tube is

(i) directly proportional to the coefficient of viscosity () of the liquid.

(ii) inversely proportional to the density of the liquid and

(iii) inversely proportional to the diameter (D) of the tube.

That is v c D

vc = D

or =

...............(1)

If R < 2000, the flow of liquid is streamline or laminar. If R > 3000, the flow is turbulent. If R lies

between 2000 and 3000, the flow is unstable and may change from streamline flow to turbulent flow.

E QUATI ON OF C ONTI N UI T Y

The equation of continuity expresses the law of conservation of mass in fluid dynamics.

a 1 v 1 = a 2 v2

In general av = constant . This is called equation of continuity and states that as the area of

cross section of the tube of flow becomes larger, the liquids (fluid) speed becomes smaller and

vice-versa.

Illustrations (i)

Velocity of liquid is greater in the narrow tube as compared to the velocity of the liquid in

a broader tube.

(ii)

Deep waters run slow can be explained from the equation of continuity i.e., av = constant.

W here water is deep the area of cross section increases hence velocity decreases.

The energy possessed by a liquid by virtue of its pressure is called pressure energy.

Consider a vessel fitted with piston at one side (figure). Let this vessel is filled with a

liquid. Let A be the area of cross section of the piston and P be the pressure experienced

by the liquid.

The force acting on the piston = PA

If dx be the distance moved by the piston, then work done by the force = PA dx = PdV

This work done is equal to the pressure energy of the liquid.

The velocity of air just above the roof is large so according to Bernoullis theorem, the pressure

just above the roof is less than pressure below the roof. Due to this pressure difference an upward

force acts on the roof which is blown of without damaging other parts of the house.

When a fast moving train cross a person standing near a railway track, the person has a tendency

to fall towards the train. This is because a fast moving train produces large velocity in air between

person and the train and hence pressure decreases according to Bernoullis theorem. Thus the

excess pressure on the other side pushes the person towards the train.
