FLUID FLOW

Fluid in physics refers to liquids and gases. To study fluid flow we have to make the following assumptions: We consider fluids to be incompressible We assume that they have little or no internal friction or viscosity.   Streamline and turbulent flow. The path followed by a small element of a moving fluid is called a line of flow . A streamline is a curve whose tangent at any point is in the direction of the fluid velocity at that point. A streamline flow occurs when all elements of a fluid passing a particular point follow the same path or line of flow as the elements that passed through that point previously.   A streamline flow is achieved only when the speed is low. If the speed increases it is characterized by whirls and eddies then it becomes a turbulent flow. Turbulent flow generally occurs when the speed is high… Read More »FLUID FLOW
