Fluid Mechanics by Ali Raza

Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics that studies how fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) behave and interact with forces and energy. Fluid mechanics has many applications in engineering, geophysics, biology, and other fields.

Fluid mechanics can be divided it into three parts; fluid statics, fluid kinematics and fluid dynamics.

Fluid statics deals withe fuluids at rest, fluid kinematics deals with fluids in motion without descussing the cause of motions and fluid dynamics deals with fluids in motion also discussing the forces acting on fluid.
