Books Name: Fox and McDonald’s Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Author: Philip J. Pritchard
Why This Book is Special as a Text Book of Fluid Mechanics?
Fluid Mechanics is the generally the major branch of Physics. It discusses about the gaseous and liquids generally but in some cases it also discusses about plasma.
Fluid mechanics is also a major branch of Civil and Mechanical Engineering. In engineering, it is mainly associated with their property uses so that they can be applied in our daily life to make best use of it.
Fox and McDonald’s Introduction to Fluid Mechanics-9th ed.
is the finest books in this category. It describes the basic properties of fluids and their engineering uses and used as main textbook on major universities of the world including that of USA universities. This book categorize the critical problems and theories and describes them separately and with ease writing so that readers can get the full benefit of it.
This 9th edition updates major theories and language of the text has been made more easier.It represents problem solving methodology so that students and other readers can solve the problems easily. There are several example problems that describes the basic of the text and therefore it became the choice of many engineering students and to teachers.
