Topics
- Fluid Motion:
- Viscosity: Poiseuille's equation for Flow of a viscous Liquid through a
Capillary Tub.
- Kinematics of Moving Fluids: Idea of compressible and incompressible fluids,
Equation of continuity, streamline and turbulent flow, Reynold's number. Euler's Equation. The special case of
fluid statics F = ∇p, Simple applications (e.g: Pascal's law and Archimedes
principle).
- Non-inertial Frame:
- Galilean transformations and Galilean invariance.
- Non-inertial frames and idea of fictitious forces:
- E.O.M with respect to a uniformly accelerating frame.
- E.O.M with respect to a uniformly rotating frame - Centrifugal and Coriolis forces.
- Laws of Physics in a laboratory on the surface of the earth.
