Introductory lecture presenting a discussion of the key properties that distinguish fluids from other states of matter, a brief review of thermodynamic properties relevant to fluid mechanics, and the continuum approximation.
This video is part of a series of screencast lectures in 720p HD quality, presenting content from an undergraduate-level fluid mechanics course in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University (College Station, TX, USA).
From Prof. Ugaz:
My inspiration for producing this series of videos has been my lifelong personal journey to understand fluid mechanics and explain its beauty to others in a straightforward way. I have received no external support for this project... the effort is purely a labor of love.
I would like to acknowledge Aashish Priye and Jamison Chang for assistance in developing the materials and preparing the captioning.
