PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS

Density and Specific Gravity

2-1C Intensive properties do not depend on the size (extent) of the system but extensive properties do.

2-2C The specific gravity, or relative density, and is defined as the ratio of the density of a substance to
the density of some standard substance at a specified temperature (usually water at 4°C, for which ρ
H2O
=
1000 kg/m
3
). That is,
H2O
/ ρ ρ = SG . When specific gravity is known, density is determined from
H2O
ρ ρ × = SG .

2-3C A gas can be treated as an ideal gas when it is at a high temperature or low pressure relative to its
critical temperature and pressure.

2-4C R
u
is the universal gas constant that is the same for all gases whereas R is the specific gas constant
that is different for different gases. These two are related to each other by R = R
u
/M, where M is the molar
mass of the gas.

Chapter 2 Properties of Fluids

Vapor Pressure and Cavitation

2-11C The pressure of a vapor, whether it exists alone or in a mixture with other gases, is called the vapor
pressure P
v
. During phase change processes between the liquid and vapor phases of a pure substance, the
saturation pressure and the vapor pressure are equivalent since the vapor is pure.

2-12C Yes. The saturation temperature of a pure substance depends on pressure. The higher the pressure,
the higher the saturation or boiling temperature.

2-13C If the pressure of a substance is increased during a boiling process, the temperature will also
increase since the boiling (or saturation) temperature of a pure substance depends on pressure and increases
with it.

2-14C During liquid flow, vaporization may occur at locations where the pressure drops below the vapor
pressure. The vapor bubbles collapse as they are swept away from the low pressure regions, generating
highly destructive, extremely high pressure waves. This phenomenon which is a common cause for drop in
performance and even the erosion of impeller blades is called cavitation.

2-15 The minimum pressure in a piping system to avoid cavitation is to be determined.
Properties The vapor pressure of water at 40°C is 7.38 kPa.

Therefore, the pressure should be maintained above 7.38 kPa everywhere in flow.
Discussion Note that the vapor pressure increases with increasing temperature, and thus the risk of
cavitation is greater at higher fluid temperatures.

2-16 The minimum pressure in a pump is given. It is to be determined if there is a danger of cavitation.
Properties The vapor pressure of water at 20°C is 2.339 kPa.

2-17E The minimum pressure in a pump is given. It is to be determined if there is a danger of cavitation.
Properties The vapor pressure of water at 70°F is 0.3632 psia.

2-18 The minimum pressure in a pump to avoid cavitation is to be determined.
Properties The vapor pressure of water at 25°C is 3.17 kPa.

Energy and Specific Heats

2-19C The macroscopic forms of energy are those a system possesses as a whole with respect to some
outside reference frame. The microscopic forms of energy, on the other hand, are those related to the
molecular structure of a system and the degree of the molecular activity, and are independent of outside
reference frames.

2-20C The sum of all forms of the energy a system possesses is called total energy. In the absence of
magnetic, electrical and surface tension effects, the total energy of a system consists of the kinetic,
potential, and internal energies.

2-21C The internal energy of a system is made up of sensible, latent, chemical and nuclear energies. The
sensible internal energy is due to translational, rotational, and vibrational effects.

2-22C Thermal energy is the sensible and latent forms of internal energy, and it is referred to as heat in
daily life.

2-23C Flow energy or flow work is the energy needed to push a fluid into or out of a control volume.
Fluids at rest do not possess any flow energy.

2-24C Flowing fluids possess flow energy in addition to the forms of energy a fluid at rest possesses. The
total energy of a fluid at rest consists of internal, kinetic, and potential energies. The total energy of a
flowing fluid consists of internal, kinetic, potential, and flow energies.

Coefficient of Compressibility

2-27C The coefficient of compressibility represents the variation of pressure of a fluid with volume or
density at constant temperature. Isothermal compressibility is the inverse of the coefficient of
compressibility, and it represents the fractional change in volume or density corresponding to a change in
pressure.

2-28C The coefficient of volume expansion represents the variation of the density of a fluid with
temperature at constant pressure. It differs from the coefficient of compressibility in that latter represents
the variation of pressure of a fluid with density at constant temperature.

2-29C The coefficient of compressibility of a fluid cannot be negative, but the coefficient of volume
expansion can (e.g., liquid water below 4°C).

2-30 The percent increase in the density of an ideal gas is given for a moderate pressure. The percent
increase in density of the gas when compressed at a higher pressure is to be determined.
Assumptions The gas behaves an ideal gas.
Analysis For an ideal gas, P = ρRT and ρ ρ / ) / ( P RT P
T
= = ∂ ∂ , and thus P =

coefficient of compressibility of an ideal gas is equal to its absolute pressure, and the coefficient of
compressibility of the gas increases with increasing pressure.

Chapter 2 Properties of Fluids

Viscosity

2-38C Viscosity is a measure of the “stickiness” or “resistance to deformation” of a fluid. It is due to the
internal frictional force that develops between different layers of fluids as they are forced to move relative
to each other. Viscosity is caused by the cohesive forces between the molecules in liquids, and by the
molecular collisions in gases. Liquids have higher dynamic viscosities than gases.

2-39C The fluids whose shear stress is proportional to the velocity gradient are called Newtonian fluids.
Most common fluids such as water, air, gasoline, and oils are Newtonian fluids.

2-40C When two identical small glass balls dropped into two identical containers, one filled with water and
the other with oil, the ball dropped in water will reach the bottom of the container first because of the
much lower viscosity of water relative to oil.

2-41C (a) The dynamic viscosity of liquids decreases with temperature. (b) The dynamic viscosity of gases
increases with temperature.

2-42C For liquids, the kinematic viscosity is practically independent of pressure. For gases, the kinematic
viscosity is inversely proportional to density and thus pressure since the density of a gas is proportional to
its pressure.

2-43 A block is moved at a constant velocity on an inclined surface. The force that needs to be applied in
the horizontal direction when the block is dry, and the percent reduction in the required force when an oil
film is applied on the surface are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 The inclined surface is plane. 2 The friction coefficient and the oil film thickness are
uniform. 3 The weight of the oil layer is negligible.

Surface Tension and Capillary Effect

2-55C The magnitude of the pulling force at the surface of a liquid per unit length is called surface tension
σ
s
. It is caused by the attractive forces between the molecules. The surface tension is also surface energy
since it represents the stretching work that needs to be done to increase the surface area of the liquid by a
unit amount.

2-56C The pressure inside a soap bubble is greater than the pressure outside, as evidenced by the stretch of
the soap film.

2-57C The capillary effect is the rise or fall of a liquid in a small-diameter tube inserted into the liquid. It is
caused by the net effect of the cohesive forces (the forces between like molecules, like water) and adhesive
forces (the forces between dislike molecules, like water and glass). The capillary effect is proportional to
the cosine of the contact angle, which is the angle that the tangent to the liquid surface makes with the solid
surface at the point of contact.

2-58C The liquid level in the tube will drop since the contact angle is greater than 90°, and cos 110° < 0.

2-59C The capillary rise is inversely proportional to the diameter of the tube, and thus it is greater in the
smaller-diameter tube.

2-60E A slender glass tube is inserted into kerosene. The capillary rise of kerosene in the tube is to be
determined.
Assumptions 1 There are no impurities in the kerosene, and no contamination on the surfaces of the glass
tube. 2 The kerosene is open to the atmospheric air.
Properties The surface tension of kerosene-glass at 68°F (20°C) is σ
s
= 0.028×0.06852 = 0.00192 lbf/ft.
The density of kerosene at 68°F is ρ = 51.2 lbm/ft

given to be 26°.

2-65 A steel ball floats on water due to the surface tension effect. The maximum diameter of the ball is to
be determined, and the calculations are to be repeated for aluminum.
Assumptions 1 The water is pure, and its temperature is constant. 2 The ball is dropped on water slowly so
that the inertial effects are negligible. 3 The contact angle is taken to be 0° for maximum diameter.
Properties The surface tension of water at 20°C is σ

2-70E The minimum pressure on the suction side of a water pump is given. The maximum water
temperature to avoid the danger of cavitation is to be determined.
Properties The saturation temperature of water at 0.95 psia is 100°F.
Analysis To avoid cavitation at a specified pressure, the fluid temperature everywhere in the flow should
remain below the saturation temperature at the given pressure, which is
F 100° = =
psia sat
T T
95 . 0 @ max

Therefore, the T < 100°F to avoid cavitation.
Discussion Note that saturation temperature increases with pressure, and thus cavitation may occur at
higher pressure locations at higher fluid temperatures.

2-71 Air in a partially filled closed water tank is evacuated. The absolute pressure in the evacuated space is
to be determined.
Properties The saturation pressure of water at 60°C is 19.94 kPa.
Analysis When air is completely evacuated, the vacated space is filled with water vapor, and the tank
contains a saturated water-vapor mixture at the given pressure. Since we have a two-phase mixture of a
pure substance at a specified temperature, the vapor pressure must be the saturation pressure at this
temperature. That is,
kPa 19.94 = =
°C sat v
P P
60 @

Discussion If there is any air left in the container, the vapor pressure will be less. In that case the sum of
the component pressures of vapor and air would equal 19.94 kPa.

2-77 A relation is to be derived for the capillary rise of a liquid between two large parallel plates a distance
t apart inserted into a liquid vertically. The contact angle is given to be ϕ..
Assumptions There are no impurities in the liquid, and no contamination on the surfaces of the plates.
Analysis The magnitude of the capillary rise between two large parallel plates can be determined from a
force balance on the rectangular liquid column of height h and width w between the plates. The bottom of
the liquid column is at the same level as the free surface of the liquid reservoir, and thus the pressure there
must be atmospheric pressure. This will balance the atmospheric pressure acting from the top surface, and
thus these two effects will cancel each other. The weight of the liquid column is

Chapter 2 Properties of Fluids 2-7 An automobile tire is inflated with air. The pressure rise of air in the tire when the tire is heated and the amount of air that must be bled off to reduce the temperature to the original value are to be determined. Assumptions 1 At specified conditions, air behaves as an ideal gas. 2 The volume of the tire remains constant. Properties The gas constant of air is R = 0.287 kPa⋅m3/kg⋅K. Analysis Initially, the absolute pressure in the tire is
P = Pg + Patm = 210 + 100 = 310 kPa 1

Treating air as an ideal gas and assuming the volume of the tire to remain constant, the final pressure in the tire can be determined from
323K P1V 1 P2V 2 T =  → P2 = 2 P1 = (310kPa) = 336 kPa T1 T2 T1 298K
Tire 25°C

Thus the pressure rise is
∆P = P2 − P1 = 336 − 310 = 26 kPa

210 kPa

The amount of air that needs to be bled off to restore pressure to its original value is
m1 = m2 = P1V (310kPa)(0.025m 3 ) = = 0.0906kg RT1 (0.287kPa ⋅ m 3 /kg ⋅ K)(298K) P2V (310kPa)(0.025m 3 ) = = 0.0836kg RT2 (0.287 kPa ⋅ m 3 /kg ⋅ K)(323K) ∆m = m1 − m 2 = 0.0906 − 0.0836 = 0.0070 kg

Assumptions 1 At specified conditions, air behaves as an ideal gas. 2 The volume of the tire remains constant. Properties The gas constant of air is R = 0.3704 psia⋅ft3/lbm⋅R. Analysis The initial and final absolute pressures in the tire are P1 = Pg1 + Patm = 20 + 14.6 = 34.6 psia P2 = Pg2 + Patm = 30 + 14.6 = 44.6 psia Treating air as an ideal gas, the initial mass in the tire is
m1 = (34.6 psia)(0.53 ft 3 ) P1V = = 0.0900 lbm RT1 (0.3704 psia ⋅ ft 3 /lbm ⋅ R)(550 R)

Tire 0.53 ft3 90°F 20 psia

Noting that the temperature and the volume of the tire remain constant, the final mass in the tire becomes
m2 = (44.6 psia)(0.53 ft 3 ) P2V = = 0.1160 lbm RT2 (0.3704 psia ⋅ ft 3 /lbm ⋅ R)(550 R)

Thus the amount of air that needs to be added is
∆m = m 2 − m1 = 0.1160 − 0.0900 = 0.0260 lbm
