Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers

Chapter 1: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics


1.10: Note that the lower- and upper-case deltas (d and D) are not the same as each other. Also, the addition of liquid to the right-hand leg will alter the height of the liquid in the left-hand leg.

1.16: To obtain an accurate result, you cannot assume that the air is incompressible.

1.23: You must derive the shapes of the interfaces, not assume them.

1.30: Note that the absolute pressure at the oil/methane interface is requested, not the gauge pressure there.
