The concept of a Fluid

## • For a fluid the molecules

not fixed to a lattice
structure
• Solid can resist a shear
stress by a static
deformation; a fluid
cannot
• A fluid at rest must be in
a state of zero shear
stress

The concept of a Fluid, 2

• Liquids - Closely
packed molecules
Strong cohesive forces
Tend to retain its volume

## Forms a free surface in

gravitational field at
unsupported surface

## • Gases - Widely spaced

molecules
Negligable cohesive force
Cannot for a free surface

Continuum Approximations

## Fluid Properties vary smoothly or continuously in space

lim δm
• Density of Fluid defined ρ=
as: δV → 0 δV
• Too large volume gives
noticable variations in
particles
• Too small volume get to
molecular variations
• Limiting volume ~10e-09

Thermodynamic Properties of Fluids - 4
• State Relations for a Gas
Perfect or Ideal Gas - P = ρ RT
Gas Constant - R = Cp - Cv
Universal Gas Constant - Rgas= Λ / Mgas
Specific Heats
Cv = du/dT at constant density -> du = Cv(T)dT
Cp = du/dT at constant pressure -> dh = Cp(T)dT
