Which have intermolecular bonds (s,l,g)? solids and liquids
WHat can withstand perpendicular forces? gases, liquids, solids
What can withstand parallel forces? solids
specific gravity (2) 1.) p = p(material) / p(water) at 4C 2.) Weight / buoyant force

What are intensive properties? do not change with quantity of substance (density and pressure)
What are incompressible and have constant density? liquids and solids
Does a bucket or cup of water have a greater density? NEITHER -mass refers to inherent mass -liquids are incompressible
Why does density of gas change? gases are compressible --> change volume --> change density
2 densities of water p = 1000 kg/m^3 p = 1 gm / cm^3

Relate Patm and Pascals P(atm) = 101,000 Pa
Does Pascal's Principle apply to gases? NO --> gases are compressible
Does the shape of a container affect fluid pressure? NO --> fluid pressure is a function of depth -pressure everywhere at a given depth in same resting fluid is constant

What does weight equal to for a sunken object p (object) * V (object) *g
How do weight and buoyant force relate to density for sunken object? weight / buoyant force = p(object) / p(medium)

Under what conditions of weight, buoyant force, and density will an object sink? W > B p(object) > p(medium)
What IMF account for surface tension? H-bonds or Van der Waals
Water vs. ethanol: which will evaporate first / which will condense first? -ethanol -water
What happens with surface tension increases? SA decreases, volume stays the same, spherical shape, evaporate less
Cohesion attraction between same molecules
adhesion attraction between different molecules
What is viscous force? -fluid flowing through pipe experiences forward and opposing frictional force -measure of fluids resistance to forces not perpendicular to surface
In a pipe, where is the fluid the fastest? Slowest? center near edges of pipe
Increase temperature of fluid, what happens to viscosity of liquid and gas? liquid viscosity decreases, gas viscosity increases
Flow Rate Volume of fluid that passes through a pipe per unit time --> different from flow speed of a fluid
Poiseuille's Principle Q = pi*r^4 / 8nL (P1-P2)
What does high BP mean in relation to Poiseuille's Principle? Heart is generating a large P1 to produce necessary Q to get blood to tissue
Continuity equation A1V1 = A2V2
Why does fluid flow? flows from region of high pressure to low pressure -->more precisely direction of fluid flow is fluid's tendency to find greatest entropy
What work is done on fluid? pressure difference pushing fluid in one direction W = deltaKE + deltaPE
Bernoulli's Equation P1 + 1/2pv^2 + pgy1 = P2 + 1/2pv^2 + pgy2 --> think conservation of energy!
What happens to pressure when there is higher velocity? Pressure decreases
How to increase turbulence? (density, avg velocity, radius) increase density, average velocity, and radius of vessel
Does buoyant force change with depth? NO --> due to difference in pressure only between upper and lower surfaces
What kind of motion can molecules in a moving fluid thought to have? 1.) random translational motion (contributes to fluid pressure for fluid at rest) 2.) uniform translational motion (does not contribute to fluid pressure)
Ideal Fluid (4 characteristics) 1.) No viscosity 2. ) incompressible --> uniform density 3.) no turbulence 4.) irrotational flow
What is turbulence? at any point in fluid, velocity may vary with time
Why does pressure decrease when velocity increases? uniform translational KE is achieved by borrowing energy from random translational KE --> pressure goes down
What happens to pressure when you increase cross-sectional area? increases
What happens to pressure when you decrease cross-sectional area? decreases
What creates drag? narrow and long pipe
Does narrowing a pipe increase velocity for ideal and non-ideal fluid? YES --> less effect on non-ideal because of drag
Why does pressure decrease when cross-SA decreases? A1V1 = A2V2 -faster velocity --> less opportunity to interact with walls of vessel -lower pressure
What does surface tension depend on? IMF and temperature of fluid -higher temp, weaker surface tension
