An Introduction to Fluid Mechanics

Cambridge University Press, 2013.

Also available on Amazon.com.

From the cover: This is a modern and elegant introduction to engineering fluid mechanics enriched with numerous examples, exercises, and applications. The goal of this textbook is to introduce the reader to the analysis of flows using the laws of physics and the language of mathematics. The approach is rigorous, but mindful of the student. Emphasis is on building engagement, competency, and problem-solving confidence that extends beyond a first fluids course.

Chapter 1

p47 Chapter 1: Equation 1.133 should be 0.11 hp instead of 1.1 hp.

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4Problem 4.14: In the solution manual the density is taken to bee 13 g/cm^{3}instead of 13.6 g/cm^{3}as indicated in the text. The correct answer is 720 Pa.

Chapter 7

page 569 a_{v}= 72.0 1/cm (not 720 1/cm)

page 591 Problem 7.33: Instead of "isoceles" it should say "equilateral"

Chapter 8Problem 8.19: Should read: "Calculate the speed of the ball at impact, both with . . . "

page 675, Figure 8.32. What is plotted is a dimensionlesss pressure. The label is correct for potential flow pressure; for creeping flow pressure, the dimensionless pressure is (p-p_infty)/(\mu, v_\infty/2R).

page 734, Problem 12, the word "Stokes" should be replaced with, in the first instance, "creeping" and the second with "creeping flow". Creeping flow is the same as Stokes flow, but it is better not to introduce this additional term.

page 735, Problem 8.19, "calculate the speed of the ball" should be "calculate the speed of the ball at impact"

page 736, Problem 31, line 2, "Figures 8.9 and 8.9" should read "Figures 8.9 and 8.24"

page 736, Problem 38, "1 inch" should be "1.0 inch" to reflect the correct number of significant figures.

page 870, Equation 10.97, p_2-p_1 should be p_1-p_2
