The measure of a body’s resistance to acceleration
Different from but proportional to weight
The gravitational force exerted on an object
Amount of mass per unit volume
Pressure due to the weight of the atmosphere above a certain point.
Approximately 14.7 psi at sea level
Lubbock is approximately 13.9 psi
Density of a fluid referenced to:
Air if it is a gas
Water if it is a liquid
Referenced to a complete vacuum
Equals gage pressure plus atmospheric pressure for positive pressures
585 psig + 14.7 psia = 599.7 psia
Equals Complete vacuum minus gage vacuum for vacuums
29.92 in Hg – 26 in Hg = 3.92 in Hg
Temperature referenced to absolute zero
-273oC = 0 Kelvin
Point at which all molecular motion stops
A state of balance between two opposing actions
The change in volume of a unit volume of a fluid when it is subjected to a unit change of pressure
The action of one body on another tending to change the velocity of the body acted upon
The action of one body or substance rubbing against another, such as fluid flowing against the walls of pipe
The resistance to motion caused by this rubbing
The tendency of a body at rest to remain at rest, and a body in motion to continue to move at a constant speed along a straight line, unless the body is acted upon in either case by an unbalanced force
The ability or capacity to do work
Anything that has the ability to flow
A liquid or gas
A change in the volume of a substance due to a change in its temperature
The rate of motion in a particular direction
The velocity of fluids is usually expressed in feet per second
The rate of doing work
The rate of expanding energy
Power = Work/Time
The transference of energy from one body or system to another
That which is accomplished by a force acting through a distance
Work = Force * Distance
The absolute pressure of a fixed mass of gas varies inversely as the volume, provided the temperature remains constant.
If the pressure is constant, the volume of dry gas will vary directly with the absolute temperature.
At the same temperature and pressure, equal volumes of different gases contain equal numbers of molecules.
6.023x1023 atoms per mole
Mole – The amount of pure substance that contains the same number of elementary entities as there are atoms in exactly 12 grams of the isotope carbon 12
Dalton’s Law of partial pressures
A mixture of several gases which do not react chemically exerts a pressure equal to the sum of the pressures which the several gases would exert separately if each were allowed to occupy the entire space alone at the given temperature.
A pressure applied to a confined fluid at rest is transmitted with equal intensity throughout the fluid
Pressure is inversely proportional to velocity.
An increase in velocity of a fluid will cause decrease in pressure
1ST: A body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion
2ND: An imbalance of force on a body tends to produce an acceleration in the direction of the force. This acceleration is directly proportional to the force and inversely proportional to the mass of the body F=mA
3RD: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
