Newtons Second Law
1/5
As a fluid particle moves from one location to another, it
experiences an acceleration or deceleration.
According to Newtons second law of motion, the net force acting
on the fluid particle under consideration must equal its mass times
its acceleration.
F=ma
In this chapter, we consider the motion of inviscid fluids. That is,
the fluid is assumed to have zero viscosity. For such case, it is
possible to ignore viscous effects.
The forces acting on the particle ? Coordinates used ?
4
Newtons Second Law
2/5
The fluid motion is governed by
F= Net pressure force + Net gravity force
To apply Newtons second law to a fluid, an appropriate
coordinate system must be chosen to describe the
motion. In general, the motion will be three-dimensional
and unsteady so that three space coordinates and time
are needed to describe it.
The most often used coordinate systems are rectangular
(x,y,z) and cylindrical (r,u,z) system.
5
Newtons Second Law
3/5
In this chapter, the flow is confined to be two-dimensional
motion.
As is done in the study of dynamics, the motion of each
fluid particle is described in terms of its velocity vector V.
As the particle moves, it
follows a particular path.
The location of the particle
along the path is a function
of its initial position and
velocity.
6
Newtons Second Law
4/5
For steady flows, each particle slides along its path, and
its velocity vector is everywhere tangent to the path. The
lines that are tangent to the velocity vectors throughout the
flow field are called streamlines.
For such situation, the particle motion is described in
terms of its distance, s=s(t), along the streamline from
some convenient origin and the local radius of curvature
of the streamline, R=R(s).
7
Newtons Second Law
5/5
The distance along the streamline is related to the
particles speed by V=ds/dt, and the radius of curvature is
related to shape of the streamline.
The acceleration is the time rate of change of the velocity
of the particle

F=ma along a Streamline

A change in fluid particle speed is accomplished by the
appropriate combination of pressure gradient and particle
weight along the streamline.
For fluid static situation, the balance between pressure
and gravity force is such that no change in particle speed
is produced.

Where C is a constant of integration to be
determined by the conditions at some point on
the streamline.
In general it is not possible to integrate the pressure term because
the density may not be constant and, therefore, cannot be removed
from under the integral sign.

horizontal streamline A-B in front of the sphere of radius a, as
shown in Figure E3.1(a). From a more advanced theory of flow past
a sphere, the fluid velocity along this streamline is

Under the basic assumptions: the flow is steady and the fluid is
inviscid and incompressible.
Application of F=ma and integration of equation of motion along
and normal to the streamline result in

To produce an acceleration, there must be an unbalance of
the resultant force, of which only pressure and gravity were
considered to be important. Thus, there are three process
involved in the flow mass times acceleration (the V

pressure (the p term), and weight (the z term).

27
Example 3.4 Kinetic, Potential, and
Pressure Energy
Consider the flow of water from the syringe
shown in Figure E3.4. A force applied to the
plunger will produce a pressure greater than
atmospheric at point (1) within the syringe.
The water flows from the needle, point (2),
with relatively high velocity and coasts up to
point (3) at the top of its trajectory. Discuss
the energy of the fluid at point (1), (2), and (3)
by using the Bernoulli equation.
28
Example 3.4 Solution

The sum of the three types of energy (kinetic, potential, and pressure)
or heads (velocity, elevation, and pressure) must remain constant.
The pressure gradient between (1) and (2)
produces an acceleration to eject the water
form the needle.
Gravity acting on the particle between (2) and
(3) produces a deceleration to cause the water
to come to a momentary stop at the top of its
flight.

Each term in the Bernoulli equation can be interpreted as a
form of pressure.

p is the actual thermodynamic pressure of the fluid as it
flows. To measure this pressure, one must move along
with the fluid, thus being static relative to the moving
fluid. Hence, it is termed the static pressure seen by the
fluid particle as it moves.

as the pressure at the end of a small tube inserted into the

motion has died out, the liquid will fill the tube to a height
of H.
The fluid in the tube, including that at its tip (2), will be
stationary. That is, V

There is a stagnation point on any stationary body that is

The dividing line is termed the stagnation streamline and
terminates at the stagnation point on the body.

pressure is the largest

The use of pitot-static tube depends on the ability to
measure the static and stagnation pressure.
An accurate measurement of static pressure requires that
none of the fluids kinetic energy be converted into a

This requires a smooth hole with no burrs or imperfections.

Typical pressure distribution along a Pitot-static tube.
The pressure along the surface of an object varies from the

It is important that the pressure tapes be properly located
to ensure that the pressure measured is actually the static
pressure.

Three pressure taps are drilled into a small circular
cylinder, fitted with small tubes, and connected to three

Confined Flows
1/4
When the fluid is physically constrained within a device,
its pressure cannot be prescribed a priori as was done for
the free jet.
Such cases include nozzle and pipes of various diameter
for which the fluid velocity changes because the flow area
is different from one section to another.
For such situations, it is necessary to use the concept of
conservation of mass (the continuity equation) along with
the Bernoulli equation.
Tools:Bernoulli equation + Continuity equation

4/4 example of cavitation
A example of cavitation can be demonstrated with a garden hose. If
the hose is kinked, a restriction in the flow area will result.
The water velocity through the restriction will be relatively large.
With a sufficient amount of restriction the sound of the flowing
water will change a definite hissing sound will be produced.
The sound is a result of cavitation.

Example 3.10 Siphon and Cavitation
Water at 60 is siphoned from a large tank through a constant
diameter hose as shown in Figure E3.10. Determine the maximum
height of the hill, H, over which the water can be siphoned without
cavitation occurring. The end of the siphon is 5 ft below the bottom
of the tank. Atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psia.
The value of H is a function of both the
specific weight of the fluid, , and its
vapor pressure, p

Example 3.14
Energy Line and Hydraulic Grade Line
Water is siphoned from the tank shown in Figure E3.14 through a
hose of constant diameter. A small hole is found in the hose at
location (1) as indicate. When the siphon is used, will water leak out
of the hose, or will air leak into the hose, thereby possibly causing
the siphon to malfunction?

85
Example 3.14 Solution
1/2
Whether air will leak into or water will leak out of the hose depends
on whether the pressure within the hose at (1) is less than or
greater than atmospheric. Which happens can be easily determined
by using the energy line and hydraulic grade line concepts. With the
assumption of steady, incompressible, inviscid flow it follows that the
total head is constant-thus, the energy line is horizontal.

Since the hose diameter is constant, it follows from the continuity
equation (AV=constant) that the water velocity in the hose is constant
throughout. Thus the hydraulic grade line is constant distance, V
2
/2g,
below the energy line as shown in Figure E3.14.
86
Example 3.14 Solution
2/2
Since the pressure at the end of the hose is atmospheric, it follows that
the hydraulic grade line is at the same elevation as the end of the hose
outlet. The fluid within the hose at any point above the hydraulic grade
line will be at less than atmospheric pressure.

Thus, air will leak into the hose through the hole at point (1).
