Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Edition uses equations to model phenomena that we see and interact with every day. Placing emphasis on solved practical problems, this book introduces circumstances that are likely to occur in practice-reflecting real-life situations that involve fluids in motion. It examines the equations of motion for turbul
