Physics Unit 19 – Fluid Physics – Statics
College and AP Physics 2
This course is one of several courses designed for students in college level physics. This course covers in great detail the topics in fluid physics considered as "static" which means the fluid is not flowing. We cover the sup topics of density, specific gravity, pressure, Pascal's principle, buoyancy, and Archimedes' principle.
The videos and resources will include lectures and plenty of worked out example problems covering all aspects of fluid statics. This is perfect for any student whom wishes to expand their physics knowledge. While this course does not cover calculus based physics, any student enrolled in such course will still benefit from the ground work laid out here.
