A calculus-based engineering course which deals with the development of basic fluid mechanic relations. Emphasis is placed on the control-volume approach for solving problems, Topics includes fluid behavior and fluid properties: hydrostatic pressure and forces; buoyancy and stability; continuity, momentum, and Bernoulli equations; similitude and dimensional analysis; scale analysis and modeling; internal and external flows with friction; Reynolds number; laminar and turbulent flows; mathematical development of the hydrodynamic boundary layer; boundary layer separation and fluid dynamic drag; fluid flow in pipes and ducts,; friction and minor losses.
