Book Description:**Introduction to Fluid Mechanics** book by the

author Robert W. Fox continues to provide readers with a

balanced and comprehensive approach to mastering critical

concepts. This

fluid mechanics book incorporates a proven

problem-solving methodology that will help them develop an

orderly plan to finding the right solution. It starts with

basic equations, then clearly states assumptions, and

finally, relates results to expected physical behavior. Many

of the steps involved in analysis are simplified by using

Excel.
