Matter heated to a very high temperature
Many of the electrons are freed from the nucleus

Plasmas exist inside stars or experimental reactors or
fluorescent light bulbs!

Is there a concept that helps to distinguish between
those states of matter?
Density
►
The density of a substance of uniform composition is defined as its
mass per unit volume
:
some examples:
►
Object is denser
Density is greater
►
The densities of most liquids and solids vary
slightly
with changes
in temperature and pressure
►
Densities of gases vary
greatly
with changes in temperature and
pressure (and generally 1000 smaller)

ratio of the force exerted
by a fluid on a submerged
object to area
Units

)
Example:

=100 Pa.
1.1 Pressure and Depth
►
If a fluid is at rest in a container,
all portions of the fluid must be in
static equilibrium
►
All points at the same depth must
be at the same pressure
(otherwise, the fluid would not be
in equilibrium)
►
Three external forces act on the
region of a cross

sectional area A
External forces: atmospheric, weight, normal
1. Variation of Pressure with Depth

in three different containers. Rank the values of
pressure from the greatest to the smallest:

Absolute Pressure and Gauge Pressure
►
The excess pressure above atmospheric pressure is
usually called
gauge pressure (
gh
)
, and the total
pressure is called
absolute pressure
.
A storage tank 12.0 m deep is filled with water. The top of
the tank is open to the air. What is the absolute pressure at
the bottom of the tank? The gauge pressure?

is in the right
arm, and oil of unknown density p

SOLUTION
1.3 Pascal’s Principle
►
A change in pressure applied to
an enclosed fluid is transmitted
undiminished to every point of
the fluid and to the walls of the
container.
►
The hydraulic press is an
important application of
Pascal’s Principle
►
Also used in hydraulic brakes,
forklifts, car lifts, etc.
Since A

1.4 Measuring Pressure
►
The spring is calibrated by a
known force
►
The force the fluid exerts on
the piston is then measured
One end of the U

shaped tube
is open to the atmosphere
The other end is connected to
the pressure to be measured
Pressure at B is P

pressure as

Question
Suppose that you placed an extended
object in the water. How does the
pressure at the top of this object
relate to the pressure at the
bottom?
1. It’s the same.
2. The pressure is greater at the top.
3. The pressure is greater at the
bottom.
4. Whatever…
1.5 Buoyant Force
This force is called the buoyant force.
What is the magnitude of that force?
P

A
P

A
= mg
Buoyant Force
►
The magnitude of the buoyant force always equals
the
weight of the displaced fluid
►
The buoyant force is the same for a totally
submerged object of any size, shape, or density
►
The buoyant force is exerted by the fluid
►
Whether an object sinks or floats depends on the
relationship between the buoyant force and the
weight
Archimedes' Principle
Any object completely or partially submerged in a
fluid is buoyed up by a force whose magnitude is
equal to the
weight of the fluid displaced by
the object
.
This force is
buoyant force.
Physical cause:
pressure difference between the top and
the bottom of the object
Archimedes’ Principle:
Totally Submerged Object
►
The upward buoyant force is
B =

The downward gravitational force is
w = mg = ρ

►
The net force is

) g V

Depending on the direction
of the net force, the object
will either float up or sink!
►
The object is

ρ

►

so the object accelerates

Test 2
Two identical glasses are filled to the same level
with water. One of the two glasses has ice cubes
floating in it.Which weighs more?
1. The glass without ice cubes.
2. The glass with ice cubes.
3. The two weigh the same.
NOTE :
Ice cubes displace exactly their own
weight in water.
An iceberg floating in seawater, as shown in figure, is extremely
dangerous because much of the ice is below the surface. This
hidden ice can damage a ship that is still a considerable distance
from the visible ice. What fraction of the iceberg lies below the
water level ? The densities of seawater and of iceberg are

1. Variation of Pressure with Depth
2. Fluid Dynamics
2.1 Fluids in Motion: Streamline Flow
►
Streamline flow (also called
laminar flow)
every particle that passes a
particular point moves exactly
along the smooth path
followed by particles that
passed the point earlier
►
Streamline is the path
different streamlines cannot
cross each other
the streamline at any point
coincides with the direction of
fluid velocity at that point
Laminar flow around an
automobile in a test
wind tunnel.
2.1 Fluids in Motion: Turbulent Flow
►
The flow becomes irregular
exceeds a certain velocity
any condition that causes abrupt changes in
velocity
►
Eddy currents are a characteristic of turbulent flow
Hot gases from a
cigarette made visible by smoke
particles. The smoke first moves in
laminar flow at the bottom and
then in turbulent flow above
Fluid Flow: Viscosity
►
Viscosity is the degree of internal friction in the
fluid
►
The internal friction is associated with the
resistance between two adjacent layers of the fluid
moving relative to each other
2.2 Characteristics of an Ideal Fluid
►
The fluid is nonviscous
There is no internal friction between adjacent layers
►
The fluid is incompressible
Its density is constant
►
The fluid is steady
Its velocity, density and pressure do not change in time
►
The fluid moves without turbulence
No eddy currents are present
2.3 Equation of Continuity
►
The product of the cross

sectional area of a pipe
and the fluid speed is a
constant
Speed is high where
the pipe is narrow and
speed is low where
the pipe has a large
diameter
►
Av is called the
volume

The mass is
conserved :

at a rate of 9.5 liters per second. The oil is incompressible.

What is the speed of the oil? What is the mass flow rate?

Theorem of the variation of kinetic energy :
Bernoulli’s equation applied to an ideal fluid :
Bernoulli’s Equation
►
Relates pressure to fluid speed and elevation
►
Bernoulli’s equation is a consequence of Conservation
of Energy applied to an ideal fluid
►
Assumes the fluid is incompressible and nonviscous,
and flows in a nonturbulent, steady

state manner
►
States that the sum of the pressure, kinetic energy
per unit volume, and the potential energy per unit
volume has the same value at all points along a
streamline
