## Kinematics of Flow in Fluid Mechanics-Discharge and Continuity Equation

In kinematics of flow, the study is only focused on the parameters that cause the motion of the fluid and not the forces that cause the motion of a fluid particle. The discharge and continuity equation are topics that are ...

## What is Chezy’s Formula for Open Channels? How to determine Chezy’s Constant?

The Chezy’s formula was given by the French hydrologist Antonie Chezy. He related the discharge (Q) of the water flowing through an open channel with the respective channel dimensions and slope of the bed. Also Read: What is Open Channel ...

## What is Open Channel Flow? Types of Flow in Open Channels

The flow of liquid through a channel with a free surface is defined as open channel flow. This free surface of the liquid is subjected to atmospheric pressure. Hence, open channel flow can also be defined as the flow of ...

## Fluid Pressure and Pascal’s Law in Fluid Mechanics

Fluid pressure and pascal’s law are explained briefly by considering a small fluid element that is in the state of rest. The concept is more elaborated with the help of a workout example. Fluid Pressure at a Point The fluid ...

## Dimensionless Numbers and Their Importance in Fluid Mechanics

In fluid mechanics, Dimensionless numbers or non-dimensional numbers are those which are useful to determine the flow characteristics of a fluid. Inertia force always exists if there is any mass in motion. Dividing this inertia force with other forces like ...

## Determination of Pressure by Simple Manometers in Fluid Mechanics

Manometers are devices used to determine the pressure at any point in fluid either by balancing the same fluid column or by using another fluid column. A simple manometer consists of a tubular arrangement where one end of the tube ...

## What is Pressure Head in Fluid Mechanics?

Pressure head in fluid mechanics is the pressure exerted by a liquid column on the base of the container. It is represented as the height of the liquid column. Pressure head is also called static head or static pressure head ...
