Term

Definition
ρ = m / V ρ = density (kg/m^{3}) 


Term

Definition
P = F / A P = Pressure N / m^{2} F = Force N A = Area m^{2} 


Term
Pressure due to the weight of a fluid 

Definition
▲ P = ρ g ▲h P_{abs }= P _{atm} + ρ g ▲h ρ = Density abs = absolute pressure (atm + guage pressure) atm = atmospheric pressure 


Term
The buoyant force on an object equals _____ 

Definition
the weight of the fluid it displaces. Weight of fluid = density x grav. accel x volume of the fluid 


Term

Definition
SG = ρ / ρ_{ water} ρ = average density of the object ρ _{water} = density of water ( 1x 10^{3} kg/m^{3} ) 


Term

Definition
F = A v F = flow rate A = Area of opening V = velocity
