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.
2. What is Dynamic Pressure? - Definition & Equation
In this lesson, you will learn the difference between static and dynamic pressure. In addition, you will learn how to calculate each type of pressure and how each is applied in real world applications.
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.
