Description: A classic bestseller, this text is written for engineering majors taking their first course in fluids. Updated to include new advances and relevant examples, the text starts with the concepts of fluid statics, and moves on to the control / volume approach of determining flow. Noted for its careful explanation of topics and use of step-by-step examples, this text helps those new to fluid mechanics make sense of its concepts and calculations. Applications areas are emphasized, with extensive resources included for design problems involving piping and tubing. Separate problem sections now stress computer usage, and design project work. A complete Solutions Manual is available with course adoption.
