**Book Description:**

Fluid Mechanics is an essential subject in the study of the

behaviour of fluids in motion and rest. Whether a house hold

application such as the mains water supply, the natural gas

supply or industrial such as the design of the body of an

automotive car, airplane, train or the provision of

electricity from a hydropower plant.
