The fluid mechanics is defined as the science that deals with the behavior of fluids at rest (fluid statics) or in motion (fluid dynamics), and the interaction of fluids with solids or other fluids at the boundaries.

When you finish reading fluid mechanics, you should be able to

  • Understand the basic concepts of fluid mechanics and recognize the various types of fluid flow problems encountered in practice.
  • Model engineering problems and solve them in a systematic manner.
  • Have a working knowledge of accuracy, precision, and significant digits, and recognize the importance of dimensional homogeneity in engineering calculations.
