## Chapter – 3

__Fluid Statics__

Liquids and gases do not possess a fixed shape, they each have the ability to flow from one point to another. For this reason, they are referred to collectively as fluids. In other words, liquid and gas are fluids.

** Chapter Overview ****In this chapter we are going to learn the following concepts, ideas or topics;**

Now let’s move on to the notes of Fluid Statics. The PDF given below contains all the notes which includes all the topics mentioned in the chapter overview. We request students to use the notes of Fluid Statics wisely for the purpose of making notes and preparing for the board examination.

You have to scroll down the PDF to view all the notes of Fluid Statics. This PDF contains 20 slides in total which contains all the required notes of Fluid Statics. It doesn’t contains the numerical problems so if you are searching for the numericals then you’ll find them in the next PDF given below.

### Thrust and Pressure

The total force exerted normally on a surface is called thrust. Since thrust is a force, its SI unit is Newton (N). The dimensional formula of thrust is [MLT‐²]. The force acting normally on a unit area of the surface is called pressure.

Mathematically,

Pressure (P) = (Force)/(Area) = F/A

Pressure depends upon thrust (F) and area of contact (A). Greater the thrust (F), greater will be the pressure i.e. P∝F. On the other hand, pressure is inversely proportional to the area of contact of a body i.e. P ∝ 1/A. For example, sharp knife is more effective to use as sa cutting tool than blunt knife because it exerts more pressure due to its small area of cutting edge. Similarly, buildings of wide foundations have large surface area. This reduces the pressure exerted by the building on the ground.

The unit of pressure in SI system is N /m² or Pascal and in CGS system is dyne/cm². The dimensional formula of pressure is [ MI-¹ T-² ]. Other practical units of pressure are, atmosphere, bar, mm of Hg or torr. 1 atm = 1 standard pressure = 760mm of Hg = 1.013 bar = 1.013 × 10⁵ Pa = 14.7 lb / in²
