Ch 16: Fluid Mechanics in Physics: Homeschool Curriculum

The Fluid Mechanics in Physics unit of this High School Physics Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about theories related to fluid mechanics. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Physics Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about general definitions, equations and calculations related to fluid mechanics. There is no faster or easier way to learn about physics. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to explain the theory of continuity and its applications to fluids in motion.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Fluid Mechanics in Physics unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Fluid Mechanics in Physics Unit Objectives:

• Define density and explain its characteristics.
• Explain hydrostatic pressure.
