ARE Fluid Vocab

Vocabulary for pressure in fluids.

Fluid a non-solid state of matter which the atoms or molecules, are free to move past each other, as in a gas or a liquid
Mass density the mass per unit volume of a substance
Density a measure of some physical property (usually mass) per unit length, area, or volume.
Buoyant force a force that acts upward on an object submerged in a liquid or floating on the liquid’s surface.
Displacement the change in position of an object.
Pressure the magnitude of the force on a surface per unit area.
Atmospheric pressure the pressure at any location on Earth, caused by the weight of the air column above it.
Temperature a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance
Ideal fluid a fluid that has no internal friction or viscosity and that is incomprehensible.
Pascal’s Principle the principle that external static pressure is exerted on a fluid is distributed evenly throughout the fluid.
Bernoulli’s Principle a statement that states an increase in speed of a fluid produces a decrease in pressure and a decrease in speed produces an increase in pressure.
Lift an upward force that causes an object to go up either by creating a low pressure area above the object or by decreasing the density of the object all together
Laminar flow smooth flow of a fluid without turbulence
Turbulence chaotic or eddying movement of a fluid
Ideal gas a hypothetical gas whose particles bounce off each other with perfect elasticity
Boltzmann’s Constant 1.38*10^-23 J/K
Viscosity the ability of a fluid to resist flow
Relative Density the ratio of an object’s density compared to another object
Archimedes’ Principal any object submerged in a fluid experiences an upward buoyant force equal in magnitude to the weight of the fluid displaced
Gauge Pressure the total pressure of a fluid in a given system without atmospheric pressure

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
