Properties of Fluid: Pressure and Temperature | Fluid | Thermal Engineering

Properties of Fluid: Pressure and Temperature! 1. Pressure: The pressure is a force applied per unit area and is measured in units N/m2 or pascal. The absolute pressure of a gas is the result of a large number of the molecules forming the gas striking the walls of the vessel. The force per unit area is called the specific pressure [...]
