In this chapter we learn about the behaviour of fluids.
We will see how Archimedes' principle can be used to determine which
materials will float in a given fluid. Bernouilli's equation, which
relates the pressure to the flow speed in a fluid, will also
be presented.
As we
will see, Archimedes' principle and Bernouilli's equation are
responsible for many important and common phenomena. They will
also play an important role in our study of heat flow in the
next Chapter.
