Ch 10: Fluids in Physics

Watch video lessons on fluids in physics and learn about hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy, fluid mass and more. These video lessons are short and engaging and make learning easy!

Fluids in Physics - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

In this chapter, you'll examine characteristics of density and learn to convert among units of pressure. You'll learn to perform hydrostatic pressure calculations and apply Pascal's principle. Instructors will lead you through lessons on fluid mass, flow rate and Bernoulli's Principle. When you've watched all the lessons in this chapter, you'll be familiar with:

• Measurements for density
• Relationships between pressure, force and area
• Densities of solids and liquids
• Equation of continuity
• Formula for Bernoulli's equation
