Mechanical Properties of Fluids Class 11 CBSE Revision Notes
Mechanical Properties of Fluids Class 11 Notes – Firstly, the chapter tells about the most common property of fluids that it can flow. Also, fluids do not have resistance to change of its shape. Furthermore, the shape of the fluid is governed by the shape of the container in which it is kept. Moreover, a fluid is incompressible and has a free surface of its own. Besides, gas is compressible and it expands to occupy all the space available to it. In addition, the unit of measure of pressure is Pascal (Pa). Most noteworthy, the chapter also states Pascal’s Law.
According to expression, the pressure in a fluid varies with depth. Also, the volume of an incompressible fluid passing from a pipe of non-uniform crosssection is the same in the steady flow. The chapter also explains Bernoulli’s principle. Furthermore, the principle states that the sum of pressure, the kinetic energy per unit volume, and the potential energy per unit volume remain constant and moves along a streamline. Moreover, shear strain in a fluid does not require shear stress. In addition, if shear stress is applied to a fluid then it generates a motion which causes shear strain to grow with time.
