INT 10090 - Fluids

0.33 CR
In this module, the student will use Newton’s laws to describe and predict the motion of fluids. A fluid may take the form of a liquid or a gas. Most of the Earth’s surface is covered with a liquid, and the air above the Earth’s surface is a gas; furthermore, the motion of fluids, including the flow of blood in the body and the movement of water within plants, is essential to most living things. Fluids under pressure are used in manufacturing processes, such as in the use of compressed air, or compressed hydraulic fluids, so understanding the mechanics of fluids is important to anyone deeply involved in manufacturing.
