In the previous article, we have discussed the Gas constant in a very detailed manner, in which we have briefed about the Isothermal and Adiabatic Processes. In the Isothermal process, the temperature remains constant. Whereas the Adiabatic process, there is no heat exchange to and from the gas. Let us briefly discuss these to calculate […]

## How to Measure the Pressure with Manometers?

In metrology, there are different types of measuring instruments such as Linear measuring instruments, comparators, Indicators, interferometers and angular measuring instruments. For the measurement of Pressure in Fluids, we use Manometers and mechanical gauges. In this article, we have discussed the broad classification of the Manometers in a detailed manner. Before getting into the main […]

## How to calculate Weight Lifted by Hydraulic Jack?

We have discussed Pascal’s Law, Now in this article how we can calculate the weight lifted by Hydraulic Jack with help of Pascal’s Law. Pascal’s Law states that the pressure or intensity of pressure at a point in a static fluid is equal in all directions. Pascal’s law is used in many industrial applications, one […]

## Hydrostatic Law & Archimedes Principle

In the previous article, we discussed Pascal’s law which states the pressure or intensity of pressure at a point in a static fluid is equal in all directions. The Hydrostatic Law states that the increase of pressure in a vertically downward direction must be equal to the specific weight of the fluid at that point. Whereas, […]

## What is Pascal’s Law? | Pressure Intensity

In Fluid mechanics, Pascal’s Law states that the pressure or intensity of pressure at a point in a static fluid is equal in all directions. So we need to understand the Fluid pressure at any given point. Let us discuss more details on the Fluid pressure at any given point and the Pascals law. In […]

## What is the Gas Constant (R)?

We have discussed the physical properties of Fluids in the previous article. Fluids are either liquids or gases. A Gas constant or Universal molar Gas constant is used to determine the behaviour of a gas under the theoretical conditions. It is denoted by R. Let us discuss more details on the Gas constant. As we […]

## What are Surface Tension and Capillarity?

In Fluid Mechanics, Surface tension is one of the important physical properties of fluid among Density and Viscosity. Surface tension is defined as the tensile force acting on the surface of a liquid in contact with a gas or on the surface between two immiscible liquids such that the contact surface behaves like a membrane […]

## What is Viscosity of Fluid? | Viscosity Units

In Fluid Mechanics, Viscosity is defined as the property of a fluid that offers resistance to the movement of one layer of fluid over another adjacent layer of the fluid. We have discussed the different physical properties of Fluids in the previous article. In this article, we will discuss the Viscosity of fluid and the […]

## Physical Properties of Fluids in Fluid Mechanics

We have discussed the mechanical properties of engineering materials in the previous articles. Fluids (liquids and gases) are also a very important part of engineering. The branch of science deal with the dynamics and mechanics of fluids called Fluid Mechanics. Let us understand a few important terminologies before we understand the properties of the Fluids […]
