Introductory Operator Training: Properties of Fluids

Applied Physics: Properties of Fluids is part two of the Applied Physics four-part training series.

This course introduces and explains the many physical properties and characteristics of fluids, both liquids and gases. Unlike molecules in a solid with a defined shape, molecules in a fluid state can easily move from position to position assuming the shape of its container. Fluids transfer energy, mix with other fluids and have many unique properties.

Course objectives include:

  • Describe the physical nature of fluids
  • Identify the physical properties of liquids and gases such as density, gravity, viscosity, surface tension, solubility and miscibility
  • Explain the basic principles of fluid flow and the basic concepts of fluid dynamics
  • Apply fluid physical properties to hydrostatic head, buoyancy, phase separation, laminar and turbulent flow effects
