In the derivation of Bernoulli’s equation, the assumption of the inviscid and incompressible flow is used. However in the real case, the viscosity cannot be neglect and the density of the flow is not always constant. Thus Bernoulli’s equation is not always correct. For the lab, it is reasonable to assume the flow is inviscid and incompressible. Firstly, the pitot was placed at the center of the flow. The skin friction (effect of viscosity) is inversely proportional to distance. Therefore the effect of viscosity can be neglected in the pitot. Secondly, the speed of the flow is much lower than the speed of sound under the sonic condition. Therefore, the Mach number is low enough to neglect the change of density of the controlled volume and the controlled volume is almost incompressible. That is why we can estimate the velocity of the flow by Bernoulli’s equation and continuity equation.
As a result of the viscosity, the internal flow is constrained by the bounding walls and the effect grows during the entire flow. At the inflow region, the flow is nearly inviscid. After that, the boundary layers are growing along the duct which is called developing profile region. This is because the effect of viscosity is growing. At the centre of the duct, there is an inviscid core flow. When the boundary layers are merged, the flow is fully developed and the velocity is not affected by viscosity anymore. Meanwhile the static pressure decreases due to the effect of viscosity (friction). The expanding area of diffuser produces low velocity, which increases the pressure and adverse gradient. The fluid is viscid and the boundary layer is separated as a result of the back flow and poor pressure recovery, if the angle is large. The separation will increase the flow losses. Besides, the larger angle leads to the earlier separation and heavier flow losses. If there is an abrupt enlargement, because of viscosity, large vortex flow causes the flow losses and...
...Experiment 3: Fluid Flow Friction and Fitting Loss
Objective
To determine the pressure or head loss in different diameters pipes, joints and valves
Theory
Pipe flows belong to a broader class of flows, called internal flows, where the fluid is completely bounded by solid surfaces. In contrast, in external flows, such as flow over a flat plate or an airplane wing, only part of the flow is bounded by a solid surface. The term pipe flow is generally used to describe flow through round pipes, ducts, nozzles, sudden expansions and contractions, valves and other fittings. When a gas or a liquid flows through a pipe, there is a loss of pressure in the fluid, because energy is required to overcome the viscous or frictional forces exerted by the walls of the pipe on the moving fluid. In addition to the energy lost due to frictional forces, the flow also loses energy (or pressure) as it goes through fittings, such as valves, elbows, contractions and expansions. This loss in pressure is mainly due to the fact that flow separates locally as it moves through such fittings. The pressure loss in pipe flows is commonly referred to as head loss. When a fluid flows through pipes, energy is lost inevitably due to frictions which occur as a result of viscous drag. Fluid friction produces eddies and turbulence, and these form of kinetic energy are eventually converted into thermal energy. Losses in...

...Experiment 1
Fluid Flow In A Smooth Pipe
Abstract
In this experiment, three variable flow meters are used to alter the flowrate. Changes in pressure drop due to the change in flowrate are then observed from the three pressure gauges that can measure pressure at different range and recorded. The shift from laminar flow to turbulent flow is seen from the results recorded, but it is observed more clearly from the watersoluble dye experiment that was carried out by the demonstrator. Laminar flow turns to be turbulent when the Reynolds Number goes above a certain value, around 2000.
Aims
To look at how the pressure drop changes when the average velocity is altered in a circular pipe and to plot a graph of Friction Factor versus Reynolds Number. Another aim is to examine the shift from laminar flow to turbulent flow.

Any thing whose particles can move easily from one place to another that means shape can be easily changed upon the application of negligible force.
MECHANICS:
Study of response of bodies upon the application of force.

...objective of this lab was to find and examine the viscosities of ideal and nonideal solutions. The ideal being the toluene/pxylene and the nonideal being the methanol/water. The second objective of this lab was to investigate the temperature dependence of viscosity (Halpern, 171).
Introduction:
Viscosity is the resistance to flow of a certain fluid. In this experiment two solutions are used. According to the definition of viscosity mobile liquids have a relatively low viscosity. Fluidity is the reciprocal of viscosity, given as equation 1: F=1/ η. Fluidity is advantageous because solutions of mixed solutions of nonassociating liquids are roughly additive. In this experiment binary solutions are used, so if each pure liquid has fluidities Fa and Fb, the fluidity of a mixture is given by: Equation1 (Halpern, 173).
F=xAFA•+xBFB• where Xa and Xb are the mole fractions.
The viscosity of the mixture is given as:
ln η = XA ln η •A + XB ln η •B Equation 2 (Halpern, 173)
The second part of this lab is to measure the temperature dependence of viscosity. It is known that the viscosity of a pure liquid will increase exponentially. If the flow time of a liquid is measures and the density is known the...

Motivation. In this chapter we discuss the planning, presentation, and interpretation
of experimental data. We shall try to convince you that such data are best presented in
dimensionless form. Experiments which might result in tables of output, or even multiple volumes of tables, might be reduced to a single set of curves—or even a single
curve—when suitably nondimensionalized. The technique for doing this is dimensional
analysis.
Chapter 3 presented gross controlvolume balances of mass, momentum, and energy which led to estimates of global parameters: mass flow, force, torque, total heat
transfer. Chapter 4 presented infinitesimal balances which led to the basic partial differential equations of fluid flow and some particular solutions. These two chapters covered analytical techniques, which are limited to fairly simple geometries and welldefined boundary conditions. Probably onethird of fluidflow problems can be attacked
in this analytical or theoretical manner.
The other twothirds of all fluid problems are too...

Introduction
In the earlier chapter, the basic equations of continuity and energy were introduced and applied to fluid flow cases where the assumption of frictionless flow (or ideal fluid flow) was made. It is now necessary to introduce concepts which enable the extension of the previous work to real fluids in which viscosity is accepted and frictional effects cannot be ignored. The concept of Reynolds number as an indication of flow type will be used extensively.

Real Fluid
• In a real fluidviscosity produces resistance to motion by causing shear or friction forces between fluid particles and between these and boundary walls.
• Due to this viscous effects, fluid tends to ‘stick’ to solid surfaces and have stresses within their body. • The inclusion of viscosity allows the existence of two physically distinct flow regimes, known as laminar and turbulent flow.
