 WHAT IS THE TERM FOR ANY MATERIAL THAT HAS THE ABILITY TO FLOW?
Definition
 FLUIDS
Term
 ARE BOTH LIQUIDS AND GASES CONSIDERED TO BE FLUIDS?
Definition
 YES. THEY BOTH FLOW.
Term
 WHAT 2 THINGS CAUSES FLUID TO FLOW?
Definition
Term
 THE STUDY OF FLUIDS CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 2 AREAS. 1 OF THEM IS THE STUDY OF FLUIDS THAT ARE NOT MOVING WHICH IS CALLED ____. THE OTHER IS THE STUDY OF FLUIDS IN MOTION WHICH IS CALLED ___.
Definition
 HYDROSTATICS, HYDRODYNAMICS
Term
 PRESSURE = FORCE/AREA. CAN WE SUBSTITUTE FOR FORCE?
Definition
 YES! P=W/A pressure = weight/acceleration
Term
 WHAT IS THE FORMULA FOR MASS OF A FLUID?
Definition
 M=PV M= MASS P= DENSITY OF THE FLUID V= FLUID VOLUME
Term
 WHAT IS THE DENSITY OF WATER?
Definition
 1000KG/M3
Term
 WHAT IS THE TERM WHEN AN EXTERNAL PRESSURE IS APPLIED TO A CONFINED FLUID, IT IS TRANSMITTED UNCHANGED TO EVERY POINT WITHIN THE FLUID.
Definition
 PASCAL'S PRINCIPLE
Term
 WHAT IS THE TERM FOR AN UPWARD FORCE EXERTED BY A LIQUID, GAS, OR OTHER FLUID THAT OPPOSED THE WEIGHT OF AN IMMERSED OBJECT.
Definition
 BUOYANCY
Term
 WHAT IS THE TERM FOR ANY OBJECT, WHOLLY, OR PARTIALLY SUBMERSED IN A FLUID, IS BUOYED UP BY A FORCE EQUAL TO THE WEIGHT OF THE FLUID DISPLACED BY THE OBJECT?
Definition
 ARCHIMEDE'S PRINCIPLE. IF AN OBJECT HAS A GREATER DENSITY THATN THE FLUID THAT IT IS PLACED THEN THE OBJECT WILL SINK. IF THE BUOYANT FORCE OF THE FLUID IS GREATER THAN THE WEIGHT OF THE OBJECT THAN THE OBJECT WILL FLOAT.
Term
 WHAT IS A DEVICE THAT MEASURES THE DENISTY OF LIQUIDS?
Definition
 HYDROMETER. WHEN PLACED IN A LIQUID THE DEVICE WILL SINK UNTIL IT DISPLACES AN AMOUNT OF FLUID EQUAL TO ITS WEIGHT. IF THE FLUID IS DENSE, THE HYDROMETER DISPLACED LITTLE FLUID. IF THE FLUID HAS LOW DENSITY, THAN THE HYDROMETER WILL SINK DEEPER INTO THE FLUID.
Term
 WHAT IS THE VARIABLE FOR LAMINAR FLOW?
Definition
 M3/S
Term
 FOR LAMINAR FLOW IF FLOW IS HELD CONSTANT THEN DECREASING THE DIAMTER OF VESSEL WILL ___ THE SPEED OF THE FLUID?
Definition
 INCREASE
Term
 FOR LAMINAR FLOW WHAT IS THE EQUATION OF CONTINUITY?
Definition
 A1V1=A2V2
Term
 FOR CIRCULAR VESSELS (LAMINAR FLOW) FLOW RATE CAN BE CALCULATED WITH?
Definition
 FLOW RATE = AV=PIER2V PIE R SQUARED
