Fluids

What do we mean by fluids?


Fluids are substances that flow. substances that
take the shape of the container
Atoms and molecules are free to move .. No long range
correlation between positions.
What parameters do we use to describe fluids?

Pressure vs. Depth


Incompressible Fluids (liquids)

Due to gravity, the pressure


depends on depth in a fluid

y1

Consider an imaginary fluid volume (a


cube, each face having area A)
The sum of all the forces on this volume
must be ZERO as it is in equilibrium.
There are three vertical forces:
The weight (mg)
The upward force from the pressure
on the bottom surface (F2)

Pressure vs. Depth (2)


For a fluid in an open container:
pressure same at a given depth
independent of the container

y
p(y)

fluid level is the same everywhere in a


connected container (assuming no surface
forces)
Why is this so? Why, in equilibrium,
does the pressure below the surface
depend only on depth?

Imagine a tube that would connect two regions at the same depth.

If the pressures were different, fluid would flow in the tube!


However, if fluid did flow, then the system was NOT in equilibrium,
since no equilibrium system will spontaneously leave equilibrium.

What happens with two different fluids??


Consider a U tube containing liquids of density
1 and 2 as shown:

Compare the densities of the liquids:


A)

1 < 2

B)

C)

1 > 2

If we use the same liquids in a U tube of twice the crosssectional area as the first, compare the distances between
the levels in the two cases (depth of liquid 2 same in both
cases).
A) dI < dII

B) dI = dII

C) dI > dII

At the depth of the interface, the pressures in each side must be


equal.
Since theres more liquid above this depth on the left side, that
liquid must be less dense!

The pressure depends ONLY on the depth and the


density of the fluid.

Archimedes Principle
Suppose we weigh an object in air and
in water.

Since the pressure at the bottom of the object is


greater than that at the top of the object, the water
exerts a net upward force, the buoyant force, on the
object.

The buoyant force is equal to the difference in


the pressures times the area.

Therefore, the buoyant force is equal to


the weight of the fluid displaced.
Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 8

Sink or Float?

The buoyant force is equal to the weight of


the liquid that is displaced.
If the buoyant force is larger than the weight
of the object, it will float; otherwise it will sink.

If the object floats right-side up, then it also must float upside-down.
However, when it is upside-down, the Pb displaces some water.
Therefore the styrofoam must displace less water than it did when it
was right-side up (when the Pb displaced no water).

Example Problems
At what depth is the water pressure two atmospheres? It is one atmosphere at the
surface. What is the pressure at the bottom of the deepest oceanic trench (about
104 meters)?

Solution:
d is the depth.

P2 = P1 + gd
2.02105 Pa = 1.01105 Pa
+ 103 kg/m3*9.8m/s2*d
d = 10.3 m

For d = 104 m:

The pressure increases one


atmosphere for every 10 meters.

P2 = 1.01105 Pa + 103 kg/m3*9.8m/s2*104 m This assumes that water is


= 9.8110 Pa = 971 Atm

incompressible.

If water were compressible, would the pressure at the bottom of the ocean be
greater or smaller than the result of this calculation?
Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 13

Example Problems (2)


Have you ever tried to submerge a beach ball (r = 50 cm) in a swimming pool? Its
difficult. How big a downward force must you exert to get it completely underwater?

Solution:
F = g4r3/3 = 5131 N
= 523 kg*g

Im ignoring the weight of the beach ball.


The force is the weight of a 523 kg object.

More Fun With Bouyancy

Two cups are filled to the same level with


water. One of the two cups has plastic
balls floating in it. Which cup weighs
more?

Cup I

Cup II

Archimedes principle tells us that the cups weigh the same.


Each plastic ball displaces an amount of water that is exactly
equal to its own weight.

Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 15

Still More Fun!

A plastic ball floats in a cup of water with half of its volume


submerged. Oil (oil < ball <water) is slowly added to the
container until it just covers the ball.
Relative to the water level, the ball moves up. Why?
water

For oil to cover the ball, the ball must have displaced some oil.
Therefore, the buoyant force on the ball increases.
Therefore, the ball moves up (relative to the water).
Note that we assume the bouyant force of the air on the ball is
negligible (it is!); the bouyant force of the oil is not.
Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 16

Pascals Principle

So far we have discovered (using Newtons Laws):


Pressure depends on depth: p = gy
Since pressure depends on depth, an object in a liquid
experiences an upward buoyant force: FB = Wliquid displaced

Pascals Principle addresses how a change in pressure is


transmitted through a fluid.

Pascals Principle:
Hydraulic jack

Any change in the pressure applied to an enclosed


fluid is transmitted to every portion of the fluid and
to the walls of the containing vessel.

Pascals Principle is most often applied to incompressible fluids


(liquids):
Increasing p at any depth (including the surface) gives the same
increase in p at any other depth
The change in pressure vs. depth depends only on g and the mass
density .

Pascals Principle (2)

BERNOULLI'S EQUATION

Continuity equation

v2t

Continuity equation is a mathematical statement of conservation of mass; the net rate of


flow of mass inward across any closed surface is equal to the rate of increase of the mass
within the surface.
For an incompressible fluid in steady flow, the equation takes the following form:

A1v1t = A2v2t

where:
= the incompressible fluid density = const.
A1&A2 = the cross-sectional area at section 1&2
v1&v2 = the fluid velocity at section 1&2

respectively.
respectively.

t = a time interval
So,the above equation can be rewritten as follows:

A1v1= A2v2

So, the product Av = constant at any given tube of flow. It follows that when the cross section of a
flow decreases, the velocity of flow increases.

Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 24

Bernoullis Equation

When an incompressible fluid flows along a horizontal flow tube


of varying cross section area, its velocity must change, continuity
equation. A force is required to produce this acceleration, and for
this force to be caused by the fluid surrounding a particular
element of fluid, the pressure must be different in different
regions.

If the pressure were the same everywhere, the net force on any
fluid element would be zero. Thus when the cross section of a
flow tube varies, the pressure must vary along the tube, even
when there is no difference in elevation. If the elevation is also
changes, there is an additional pressure difference.

Bernoullis equation is a general expression that relates the


pressure difference between two points in a flow tube to both
velocity changes and elevation changes.
Physics 111: Lecture 28, Pg 25

To derive the Bernoullis equation, we apply the work-energy theorem


to the fluid in a section of a flow tube, that is, the net work done by the
element during a small displacement s [W = (p1 p2)V] is equal to
the net change in kinetic energy [KE = 1/2V(v22 v12)] and the net
change in potential energy [PE = Vg(y2 y1)].

Then the Bernoullis equation is


(p1 p2)V = 1/2V(v22 v12) + Vg(y2 y1)

Or (p1

in this form, Bernoullis equation represents the


equality of the work per unit volume (p1 p2) to
the sum of the changes in kinetic and potential
energies per unit volume that occur during the flow.

The above equation can be rewritten as follows:


P1 + gy1+ 1/2 v12 = P2 + gy2+ 1/2 v22
and since the subscripts 1 & 2 refer to any two points
along the tube of flow, Bernoullis equation may also be
written:
P + gy+ 1/2 v2 = constant
Note carefully that p is the absolute not gauge pressure.
Example: Water enters a house through a pipe 2 cm in
diameter, at an absolute pressure of 4105 pa. The pipe
leading to the second-floor bathroom 5 m above and 1
cm in diameter. If the flow velocity at the inlet pipe is 4
m/s, find the flow velocity and pressure in the bathroom.
Answers: 16 m/s; 230 kpa
