FLUID MECHANICS
9.1 INTRODUCTION

Engineering mechanics can be divided into three parts—mechanics of the rigid body, mechanics of solids, and mechanics of fluids. In the Mechanics of rigid body, it is assumed that there is no internal deformation in the body and we study about the static and dynamic position of the body ...
