## The flow of a liquid fluid is said to be

steady, orderly, streamline or laminar, if
the velocity at every point in the fluid
remains constant. The line along which
the particles of the fluid move is called a
streamline.
The fluid flow remains steady or
streamline if does not exceed a limiting
value called its critical velocity. Beyond
critical velocity , fluid loses its steadiness
and become zigzag and sinuous
acquiring
i i turbulence.

Fundamental equation of fluid flow:

## For an incompressible fluid:

B
Mass of the fluid entering Section A
A per second = Mass of the fluid
leaving section B per second

## a 1 v1 ρ = a 2 v 2 ρ OR av = Constant (Volume flux,flux rate

of flow or rate of discharge, a = cross
⇒ a 1 v1 = a 2 v 2 sectional area)
CONTINUITY EQUATION
Equation of continuity also tells that volume rate of flow (also mass
rate of low)) of an incompressible
p fluid remains constant throughout
g
the flow.
Further, since av = constant,

1 The velocity of the fluid flow at any section of the pipe is inversely
v∝ proportional to the cross section of the pipe at that section

VISCOSITY

## The tangential backward dragging

layers of a liquid which opposes
relative motion between them is
called viscous force or viscous drag.
The property of a liquid which gives
rise to such viscous forces is called
viscosity.

STOKES’ LAW
When a body falls through a viscous medium, it
encounters an opposing viscous drag. Stokes obtained
an equation for the viscous drag on a spherical body,
body
which is given as;
F = 6πη rv
R = radius of the body; v = velocity; η =
Coefficient of viscosity of the medium
Stokes’s assumptions:
i. The body is perfectly rigid and smooth
ii Medium is infinite and homogeneous
ii.
iii. There is no slip between ball and the
medium
i There
iv. Th i no eddies
is ddi andd waves ini the
th
medium
11/26/2016 15B11PH112 Physics for Biotechnology 10
The viscous drag increases with velocity of the falling
body. In case of small bodies, this force may become
equal to the driving force. The body in this situation
attains a constant velocity know as TERMINAL
VELOCITY.

## If ρ be the density of the spherical body,

body its weight is;
4 3
W b = mg = π r ρ × g

It displaces the medium of the same volume. Thus the
weight of displaced media would be;
