Gas Laws

Gas Laws

Gas laws are laws that explain the behaviour of an ideal gas. The following are some of the important gas laws: Boyle’s law Charles’ law Amontons’ law Joule’s law of internal energy Regnault’s law Avogadro’s law 1. Boyle’s Law: Boyle’s law states that the volume of a given mass of gas (V) is inversely proportional [...]

Properties of Fluids

Properties of Fluids

Properties of fluids determine how fluids can be used in engineering and technology. They also determine the behaviour of fluids in fluid mechanics. The following are some of the important basic properties of fluids: Density Viscosity Temperature Pressure Specific Volume Specific Weight Specific Gravity 1. Density: Density is the mass per unit volume of a fluid. [...]

Fluid - Definition and Types

Fluid – Definition and Types

Fluid is a substance that is capable of flowing. It has no definite shape of its own. It assumes the shape of its container. Liquids and gases are fluids. Types of Fluids: Fluids can be classified into four basic types. They are: Ideal Fluid Real Fluid Newtonian Fluid Non-Newtonian Fluid 1. Ideal Fluid: An Ideal [...]
