Fluid Dynamics

fluid mechanics banner 4Fluid Mechanics, a branch of classic mechanics, is a branch of physics that deals with the effects of force and energy on fluid properties of liquids and gases.  This branch has two subcategories called fluid dynamics and fluid statics.

Fluid Dynamics deals with the ability of fluid movement and the interactions when coming in contact with two or more fluids.

Fluid Statics deals fluid at rest.
