Solids and Fluids

Topic Review on "Title":

Anything that has mass and takes up space.

Solids with ordered atom-structure and fixed melting point.

Solids with in ordered atom-structure and without melting point.

Young’s modulus:
Ratio of stress to strain when solids is under tension.

Shear modulus:
Ratio of stress to strain when solids is under shear.

Bulk modulus:
Ratio of stress to strain when solids is under hydraulic pressure.

The force caused by pressure variation with depth to lift immersed objects.

Surface tension:
The force to attract surfaced molecular to make the surface area of fluid as small as possible.

Capillary action:
The phenomena of fluids automatically raising in open-ended tubes.

The net rate of flow of mass inward across any closed surface is equal to the rate of increase of the mass within the surface.

The inter-friction mechanism in fluid to dissipate energy.

Laminar flow:
Every particle passing a particular point moves exactly along the smooth path followed by particles passing that point early.

Turbulent flow:
The irregular flow when the velocity of the flow is high.

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

This tutorial covers two topics, solids and fluids.  The difference between the ordered atomic structure of crystalline solids, and the random nature of amorphous solids is discussed. Other properties of solids like thermal expansion and various deformations of solids are covered too.  Next the nature of fluids is described through key concepts like Pascal’s, Archimede’s, and Bernoulli’s principle.  Finally, fluid flow is described.  Smooth laminar flow and chaotic turbulent flow are contrasted.  This idea is extended with Bernoulli’s equation which describes the relationship between the pressure, kinetic and potential energy in a system as a constant.
