Fluids in Physics: Definition and Characteristics

1. Fluids in Physics: Definition and Characteristics

Fluids really know how to move! As flowing materials, fluids have some unique properties that help us understand and describe them. In this lesson you'll explore what fluids are and how they are defined in the world of physics.

Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

2. Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

Have you ever wondered what pressure is and how it gets measured? In this lesson, we are going to define pressure and explain some of the units that are used to express measurements of pressure.

Hydrostatic Pressure: Definition, Equation, and Calculations

3. Hydrostatic Pressure: Definition, Equation, and Calculations

This video lesson will introduce you to hydrostatic pressure in a liquid, as well as provide examples for how to calculate the liquid's pressure at a given depth.

Buoyancy: Calculating Force and Density with Archimedes' Principle

4. Buoyancy: Calculating Force and Density with Archimedes' Principle

Knowledge of the buoyant force is important when trying to understand why some objects float while other objects sink. In this lesson you'll learn about this unique force and how we apply it to various situations using Archimedes' Principle.

Fluid Mass, Flow Rate and the Continuity Equation

5. Fluid Mass, Flow Rate and the Continuity Equation

Fluids rarely stay put, so we need to understand how they move. In this lesson, you will learn about how the movement of fluids is influenced by the space it passes through, as well as see examples of how to calculate aspects of this movement.

Bernoulli's Principle: Definition and Examples

6. Bernoulli's Principle: Definition and Examples

Understanding how a moving fluid's speed and pressure change as it flows along is not only important for building airplanes but also for backyard fun. In this video lesson you'll learn about Bernoulli's principle and identify some practical applications of this concept.

Archimedes' Principle: Definition, Formula & Examples

7. Archimedes' Principle: Definition, Formula & Examples

Archimedes' principle deals with the forces applied to objects by the fluids around that object. This applied force reduces the net weight of any object in a fluid, whether it be a liquid or a gas.
