U16-Multiparticle Model: Buoyancy and Pressure

Unit 16: Fluid Statics By the time you finish all lab and class activities, you should be able to: 1) A fluid is a state of matter where the individual atoms/molecules do not have fixed positions

relative to each other. 2) The mass density, , of matter is described by the amount of mass, m (kg), that is contained with a

given volume, V (m3): Density [kg/m3] = mass [kg]/Volume [m3]: = m/V

3) The pressure at a particular point in a fluid is the energy per unit volume (energy density) that must be transferred from another system into the fluid system in order to create a unit volume of fluid at that point. An alternative definition is the force per unit area exerted by an external force on the volume. Pressure is a scalar property of fluids:

pressure[Pa] =Energy[J ]

Volume[m3]=

Force[N ]Area[m2]

4) 1Pa = 1pascal = 1N/m2. Other units for pressure and their relation to one atmosphere: 1 atm = 14.7 lbs/in2 = 1.013 bar = 29.92 in Hg = 760 mm Hg = 34 ft H2O

a) Absolute Pressure: Pressure measured from zero = vacuum. b) Gauge Pressure: Pressure measured from zero = local atmospheric pressure. c) Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 101,300 Pa 105 Pa.

5) Archimedes Principle states that the buoyant force (force pushing opposite the direction of the gravitational field) acting on an object immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid.

Fbuoyant = Fg-displaced fluid = mdisplaced fluidg = displaced fluidVdisplaced fluidg

Theory Fluid Statics Examination of fluids is conveniently broken down into the use of the four models we discussed last semester, namely the free particle, constant force particle, impulsive force particle, and central force particle. The slight problem that we have to deal with (and this is a gross understatement) is that we are now dealing with a multi-particle system. At most we dealt with two particles, for example in collisions. In physics it is well known that are no closed solutions to any problems involving three or more particles, i.e. these problems can only be solved by numerical approximations. So why do we bother? There are lots of practical reasons, for example to help explain the behavior of the air that we breathe and the water essential for maintaining life on this planet. Fortunately we can approximate the behavior of fluids with macroscopic quantities, such as pressure, density, viscosity, etc. Our first lab activity is to characterize a relationship between pressure difference and depth or density for a variety of common liquids. How do we characterize a given liquid? Here is a list of things you might want to consider:

Type of liquid How deep we take measurements Volume of the liquid Stickiness of the liquid

Pressure

U16-Multiparticle Model: Buoyancy and Pressure

In the lab we will focus on a few easily controlled quantities, two of which are shown below, the depth y (solid line) at which we measure the pressure difference P, and the density (dashed line) of the liquid involved. Typical data is given for the lab situation at right. The solid line was measured in water, the dashed line was measured at a constant depth. Since this is another multivariable lab, like the uniform circular motion lab, we will have to keep in mind what the constants of the system are. E.g. for the data at right P vs. z, the density of the liquid water, =1000kg/m3, is constant. Based on the data above, if we analyze the SI units of the slope we find the for pressure versus depth (Pa/m)=(N/m3)=(N/kg)(kg/m3), or units of gravitational field times density. For pressure versus density (Pa/kg/m3) = (N/kg)(m), or units of gravitational field times depth. Furthermore the slopes are related to the product of those two constant. The consensus result of this analysis is the hydrostatic pressure equation: P = gz Derivation: This relationship can be derived from first principles by examining the system at right. Imagine placing a box of area A and height z in a pool of fluid (the box inside the pool is also filled with the fluid). The pressure of the fluid on the top of the box is Fgt/A and the pressure of the fluid on the bottom of the box is Fgb/A. The weight of the fluid/area inside the box is mg/A. Since the box is not moving, and behaves like a free particle, these forces must balance:

Fgb/A = Fgt/A + mg/A Recall F/A = P and m = V

Pb = Pt + Vg/A Recall V = Ay

Pb = Pt + Ayg/A = Pt + gy Lastly since P = Pb-Pt

P = gy This result can be extended to a discovery made by Archimedes that the buoyant force on an object (partially or completely) submerged in a fluid is equal to the weight of displaced fluid. The force is simply the pressure difference times the area of the box.

PA = gyA But since PA = F and yA = V

Fbuoyant = gV = mg = Fg, displaced water The hydrostatic pressure relationship can also be extended to Pascals Principle: Pressure applied to an enclosed fluid is transmitted undiminished to every point of the fluid and to the walls of the containing vessel. Therefore, if we examine the pressure in a U tube at the same height (z=0) where one side of the tube has a large cross sectional area than the other (see diagram at right), and since P=P2-P1 = 0, the force/area at either side of the tube must be the same:

Example 1) Consider an 80 kg person with a density of about 800 kg/m3 submerged in water.

a) Provide an interaction and force diagram of the person in the water:

b) Determine the volume of the water displaced by the person: V = m/ = 80 kg/(800 kg/m3) = 0.1 m3 (100 liters).

c) Determine the force of the water pushing the person up: F = mg = waterVg = (1000 kg/m3)(0.1 m3)(10 N/kg) = 1000 N.

d) Would this person float or sink in the water if they were released? Answer: Float since the density of the person is less than that of water.

e) If the person dives down 10 m, what will be the pressure on their eardrums? Answer: Our hydrostatic pressure relationship P = gz can be re-written:

Peardrums = Patm + gy = 101300Pa + (1000kg/m3)(10N/kg)(10m) = 201300Pa The pressure nearly doubles. 1300 Pa is insignificant to atmospheric pressure?

f) What is the pressure difference inside the persons eardrums if they havent tried to equalize the pressure in their head with the water outside?

P = gy =(1000kg/m3)(10N/kg)(10m) = 100000Pa g) What is the force on the persons eardrums (assume to be a circle of 1cm radius)

Recall the area of a circle = r2 and that pressure P = F/A P = F/A = F/r2

Rearranging: F = Pr2 = (100000N/m2)(0.005m)2 = 7.8N

This does not seem like much, but it equivalent to turning your head sideways and resting about 8 hamburgers on a 1cm diameter wooden dowel on your eardrum. OUCH!

h) If the person is allowed to float, what volume of the person would be above the surface of the water?

What information do we have? In solving a problem it is always good to start by writing down what you know:

mass of person: 80kg density of person (p): 800 kg/m3 volume of person (Vp solved): 0.1m3 weight of person (solved): 800N density of water (w): 1000 kg/m3

The persons volume includes that which is above and below the water surface: Vp = Vpa + Vpb

The volume of the person below the water equals the displaced water volume: Vp = Vpa + Vw

water (or air) earth Fg

Fb,w

Fg

Fb,a FS

U16-Multiparticle Model: Buoyancy and Pressure

Rearranging: Vpa = Vp Vw

The forces must still balance: Fg,w = Fg,p

wVwg = pVpg Rearranging:

Vw = pVp/w = (800kg/m3)(0.1m3)/(1000kg/m3) = 0.08 m3 Therefore:

Vpa = Vp Vw = 0.1m3 0.08m3 = 0.02m3 i) Determine the force air on the same person standing on dry land.

Less obvious is that air also exerts a buoyant force on us each day. But since air is about 1000 times less dense than water, this buoyant force equals

F = mg = airVg = (1.4 kg/m3)(0.1 m3)(10 N/kg) = 1.4 N. Note that in this case the buoyancy force is a tiny fraction of the force balancing the persons weight (in this case 800N), that is assumed to be balanced by some kind of surface force. The buoyant force of air is approximately equal to the weight of one hamburger. Still, air is a good thing.

You can't find a tire gauge in the car, but you do find the owner's manual and a ruler. Fortunately, you've just finished taking physics, so you tell your friend, "I don't know, but I can figure it out." From the owner's manual you find that the car's mass is 1500 kg. It seems reasonable to assume that each tire supports one-fourth of the weight. With the ruler you find that the tires are 15 cm wide and the flattened segment of the tire in contact with the road is 13 cm long.

U17-Multiparticle Model: Ideal Gas Law and Kinetic Theory

Unit 17: Ideal Gas By the time you finish all lab and class activities, you should be able to understand that: 6) A gas is a fundamental state of matter where the individual atoms or molecules do not have fixed

positions relative to each other and typical are far apart from each other. 7) The ratio of number of particles, N (typically a freakin' huge number) to the volume in which the

gas is contained, V (m3), is defined as the particle density,

N :

ParticlesVolume[m3]

Particle Density[m3]NV N

Particle number is referenced to Avagadro's number NA = 6.022x1023 pls. If you have this number of avacados it is called one guaca-mole.

8) The ratio of a force exerted over an area, or the work done Fx to compress the volume Ax is defined as Pressure. Pressure is a scalar property:

Force[N ]Area[m2]

=Energy[J ]

Volume[m3] Pressure[Pa]

FA

=EV P

Consequently pressure is an example of an energy density, reflecting the internal energy of the gas due to the kinetic energy of all the atoms or molecules in the gas. Internal energy of a gas is the result of translational, rotational, and vibrational motion of the particles. The latter two forms of motion can only happen for molecules (minimum of two atoms).

9) In a confined volume, the finite size of the particles means an enormous number of ELASTIC collisions take place between gas particles and the container or between gas particles at any finite interval of time. Gas pressure reflects conservation of linear momentum.

10) INELASTIC collisions involve special kinds of physics or (God forbid) chemistry. 11) Internal energy is proportional to the temperature "T" of the gas, the number of particles "N" and a

proportionality constant called the Boltzmann constant "kB" = 1.381x10-23 J/K, reflecting the statistical description of average particle collision behavior. Units of temperature: a) Absolute scale = Kelvin (K). 0K is the classical ceasing of all particle motion, and the triple

point of water is 273.15K. Note that no degree sign () is used with Kelvin. b) Centigrade scale = Celsius (C). Water freezes at 0C and water boils at 100C. The range

between the two is 100C (note the order, a temperature is C, a temperature difference is C). c) Fahrenheit scale = Fahrenheit (F). Water freezes at 32F and water boils at 212F. The story

behind this scale is interesting, based on the freezing point of "brine" and body temperature. 12) The ideal gas law in physics relates the work done by/on an expanding/compressing gas "PV" to the

internal energy in "N" particles at a temperature "T" and proportionality constant "kB": PV = NkBT

13) 1Pa = 1pascal = 1N/m2. Other units for pressure and their relation to one atmosphere: a) 1 atm = 14.7 lbs/in2 = 1.013 bar = 29.92 in Hg = 760 mm Hg = 34 ft H2O b) Absolute Pressure: Pressure measured from zero = vacuum. c) Gauge Pressure: Pressure measured from zero = local atmospheric pressure. d) Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 101,300 Pa 105 Pa.

Theory Ideal Gas

The particle theory of matter is one of humankinds greatest achievements. Why? Because empirical evidence, such as the kind you are about to collect in lab, was used to infer the presence of things humans could not directly see, namely atoms undergoing random collisions. In the 1850s French physicist mile Clapeyron combined results from English physicist Robert Boyle and French baloonist

U17-Multiparticle Model: Ideal Gas Law and Kinetic Theory

Jacques Charles into what we now call the Ideal Gas Law (PV=nRT)1. n=N/NA is the number of moles of "N" particles and "R" was the experimentally determined "ideal gas constant", 8.314 J/(moleK). Later this emperical result would be firmly rooted in "kinetic theory" developed by Austrian Physicist Ludwig Boltzmann2 (Figure 1) who defined the ratio of the ideal gas constant to Avagadros number as a fundamental statistical mechanical parameter that would later bear his name, the Boltzman Constant:

RN A

= kB =1.381x1023 J

K

The importance of this result is that humans had figured out how to measure pressure and temperature, the result of gazillions of colliding particles, that could not be seen! Physicists are more partial to the form of the ideal gas law PV=NkBT because it emphasis the collective result of gazillions of particles elastically colliding with each other and with the walls of container of volume "V". "NA" is an inconceivably huge number even for objects as small as a grain of sand. One NA of beach sand will fill a sandbox approximately 1km wide, 1km long and 1km deep. Reasonable volumes and masses of a mole of particles are obtained only when dealing with objects as small as atoms.

Clapeyron Boyle Charles Boltzmann

Figure 1 That's enough of history. What does kinetic theory mean and why should you care? It turns out that understanding fluids requires a grasp of the microscopic picture. If you can understand why gazillions of interacting particles give rise to pressure, then you are more likely to understand more challenging aspects of fluids, such as hydrostatic pressure, dynamic pressure due to moving particles, and real physiological problems such as high blood pressure. One of the important leaps of faith we make when dealing with gasses is that temperature is a measure of kinetic energy corresponding to approximately the average speed of a gas particle of mass "m". The result of kinetic theory is that:

m < v2 >3

= kBT

is the "root mean square" speed of the particles in the container, a way of describing an average speed of all particles in the volume. The 1/3 comes about because on average 1/3 of the particles are going in any given coordinate direction, x, y or z. The term to the left then reflects a portion of the average kinetic energy of a gas particle, which is proportional to the temperature of all the particles in the container a truly impressive result. Only within the past 10 years have humans been able to control the temperature of an individual atom3, so kinetic theory was amazing, exceeding humans abilities to control individual atoms by over 150 years! Because the ideal gas law has four state variables (P, V, N, T) we will need to describe processes in which some of the variables are kept constant. For example, constant pressure processes are called "isobaric". Constant volume processes are called "isochoric" or "isovolumetric". A constant number of particles will be a "constant number of particles" (duh) or isomolar particle number. Lastly a constant temperature is called an "isothermal" process. To help you visualize the features of the ideal gas we will introduce a set of powerful diagrammatic tools (Figure 2) that will attempt to make sense of 1 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ideal_gas_law 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinetic_theory 3 http://physics.aps.org/articles/v5/121

U17-Multiparticle Model: Ideal Gas Law and Kinetic Theory

Pre-lab demonstration activities: The instructors will have you examine two introductory activities to get you thinking about how ideal gasses behave. The first will be "Handboilers", sealed glass tubes filled with small amounts of dyed alcohol. These are delicate instruments so please be very careful as they break easily. As you hold the bottom or top of each boiler what do you observe? What do you think is going on? You will be asked to explain the behavior in terms of the diagrammatic tools shown on the previous page. The next activity will be to carefully observe the opening of a fresh bottle of seltzer. The instructor may use a camera to help magnify the activity. What do you observe? Why? Again, as part of the pre-lab discussion use the diagrammatic tools to explain what is going on. Our first lab activity is to characterize a relationship between the various ideal gas law terms: Pressure, Volume, Particle number and Temperature. As an example we will present one result that will NOT be examined in lab, in part because it is hard to do. But we can describe the experiment in easy to understand terms and even model some parts of the relationship with a PHET simulation on ideal gasses (http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/gas-properties). The experiment involves a glass bottle fitted with a stopper that has a small hole in it to let gas in and out, so the volume is constant. The bottle can be immersed in a bath of liquid that can be cooled to the boiling point of nitrogen (77K), cooled to the freezing point of water (273K) and then heated to the boiling point of water (373K). Because there is a small hole in the bottle, dry gas (free of moisture) can move in and out of the bottle as necessary to keep the atmospheric pressure constant in the bottle. The remaining parameters that can be changed are clearly the number of particles (dependent) and temperature (independent). We will first diagram what we expect of the gasses at low and high temperature, and then plot graphically how particle number depends on temperature from a virtual experiment. Notice the diagram on the left side involving two same size circles (constant volumes). As the temperature increases the number of the interactions with the chamber and other particles (i.e. the pressure) stays constant by pushing out particles through the hole, such that the number of lines (particles) decreases in the bottle. The plot at right, from ideal data, is an inverse. This experiment is difficult to accomplish because measuring such a large number of dry gas particles must be inferred and cannot be measured directly, plus it is essential to have a wide range of temperatures so that you can see the inverse nature of the plot. Linearization of this data would yield the following math model:

N (# pls) =7.3x1025(# pls * K )

T ( K )=

Check this result from the known constants to see if the slope is correct. If we could measure the number of particles and temperature accurately, we could directly extract the Boltzmann's Constant from the slope of the linear plot and the known constants of pressure and volume.

U18-Multiparticle Model: Ideal Fluid Flow

Unit 18: Fluid Dynamics By the time you finish all lab and class activities, you should be able to: 1) Written in terms of variables that describe a fluid, the statement that all changes in energy must sum

to zero is called Bernoulli's equation:

0 = gy +12 v2( ) + P

a) For this expression of conservation of energy, the fluid must flow in smooth streamlines without friction, must not have any vortices, and must be incompressible. These conditions describe an ideal fluid but are fairly good approximations for many fluids.

2) For steady state continuous flow confined in a pipe or tube, the volume flow rate V/t must remain constant in time and be the same at any cross section. If the cross-sectional area A changes, then the speed of the fluid v must change to keep the volume constant. For incompressible fluids, the volume flow rate is given by:

V/t = A1v1 = A2v2 a) and is an expression of another conservation law--the conservation of fluid volume, which can

neither appear nor disappear in a closed system.

Theory Fluid Dynamics As mentioned at the beginning of the last unit: Examination of fluids is conveniently broken down into the use of the four models we discussed last semester, namely the free particle, constant force particle, impulsive force particle, and central force particle. The complication is that these models are to be applied to multi-particle problems in which macroscopic phenomena (like pressure, density, etc.) are used to describe the collective response of all the particles. In the previous unit we examined problems in which the collective motion of the particles was zero, that is the average particle was interacting with its neighbors, but not in motion with respect to the laboratory reference frame. In this unit we examine free particle behavior for particles in motion at constant velocity with respect to the laboratory reference frame. Though this velocity may be different at different points in the system, for the time being we will ignore acceleration. Our first lab activity examines the influence on pressure due to the motion of particles. When a tube is attached to a sensitive pressure gauge and the tube is swung in circles at constant speed, the pressure inside the tube can be observed to decrease (diagram at right). If we examine the pressure difference versus speed we find the following results in the graph below. The graph appears to be a downward opening parabola that can be linearized by plotting absolute pressure versus velocity squared. As with all previous models we examine the slope and intercept of the linearized data to understand the physics of the problem. Clearly the pressure depends on the velocity squared. The same principle is used by airplanes ("Pitot" tube) to determine air speed.

The units of the slope are (Pa/m2/s2) = (kg/m3). The slope must be related to any constant(s) of the experiment. The pressure the sensor is measuring is due to loss of air molecules inside the tube as it swings around. This loss can be visualized a consequence of a lower pressure region at the end of the tube due to turbulence as the tube sweeps away air molecules from its path. The higher pressure air inside the tube will push air molecules into the lower pressure region to maintain equilibrium.

U18-Multiparticle Model: Ideal Fluid Flow

The intercept also has important physical consequences and can be easily related to the pressure in the room when the tube is not in motion. The density of air is between 1.2 and 1.4 kg/m3, depending on temperature and pressure conditions. The slope will have about the same order magnitude as the values quoted, but if the data is carefully collected, should be off by a factor of two. Just like the energy versus velocity lab resulted in a linearized data plot with slope of half the mass of the cart, this linearized data will result with a slope of half the mass/volume of fluid. Ultimately we develop a consensus mathematical model:

P = Patm-(1/2)v2

where the reference pressure, Patm, is atmospheric pressure in the room and the speed of the air, v, is at the end of the tube and is the density of the air. The hydrostatics and hydrodynamics labs can be combined into a single relationship developed by Bernoulli for the situation in which the reference fluid is in motion and changing height:

P = -gz - (1/2)(v2) where P = P2 P1, z = z2 z1, and (v2) = v22 v12. The result above can be derived from energy considerations, as shown below. Consider an ideal fluid (incompressible, irrotational, and viscous free) in the tube at right. The same mass of fluid will pass through a pipe with different cross sectional areas (e.g. A1 and A2) for every unit of time:

m/t = V1/t = V2/t where density = mass/volume. But since volume of a cylinder = area x length, and canceling density:

A1x1/t = A2x2/t But since speed = length/time:

Q1=A1v1 = A2v2=Q2 This statement of mass conservation is called The Equation of Continuity and is frequently given the name "Flow Rate" and symbol "Q=Av". Recall from the first law of thermodynamics that energy of the fluid in the pipe can only change if external forces do work on the fluid, or the fluid particles transfer energy through radiation or heat. For an insulated pipe only work is done on/by the fluid at either end of the pipe:

Wfluid = W1 + W2 = F1x1 - F2x2 Where the minus sign results from the force being opposite the displacement at the end of the pipe. From the first law of thermodynamics:

Wfluid = E = Ek + Eg = (1/2)mv22 - (1/2)mv12 + mgy2 - mgy1 Recall that m = V = Ax and substituting the result for the work done by the fluid:

F1x1 - F2x2 = (1/2)Vv22 - (1/2)Vv12 + Vgy2 - Vgy1 Dividing by volume and recognizing that x/V = 1/A and that F/A = P:

P1 P2 = (1/2)v22 - (1/2)v12 + gy2 - gy1 But since P = P2-P1 and (v2) = v22 v12 and y = y2 y1:

P = -(1/2)(v2) - gy Q.E.D.

(a) Examples 1) Explain how the equation of continuity describes the motion of river water at a restriction in the

river, for example when boulders block the river path and confine the water passage. Answer: Let A1 be the larger cross sectional area of the river where the water moves slowly. Let A2 be the cross sectional area of the water in the restriction such that A1>A2. Since A1v1 = A2v2 thus v2 = v1(A1/A2) and since A1 > A2 then (A1/A2) > 1 so v2 > v1. 2) Predict what happens to the pressure of the water in the restriction and then use Bernoullis

equation to confirm your prediction. Answer: The pressure goes down in the restriction and is largest outside of the restriction. Though slightly surprising at first, think of the restriction as a relief valve the pressure drops when the fluid is allowed to flow more quickly. Bernoullis relationship quickly confirms this prediction:

P = -(1/2)(v2) since v2 > v1 then (v2) > 0, and P = P2 P1 then:

P2 = P1 - (1/2)(v2) < P1 Operational Definitions: Ideal Fluids: Conservation of mass (flow rate): Bernoulli's Equation:

Conceptual Worksheet C: Dynamic Pressure 1) Arnold Arons: On a windy day, when the wind comes into an open window of your room, the

curtains are blown inward. Occasionally, however, a gust of wind which does not come through the window makes the curtains go out through the window (or up against the screen). This occurs even though there are no other windows open in the room (so the wind isn't blowing through the house in the opposite direction). Explain what could account for this behavior.

2) Arnold Arons: When blood flows from the arteries into the capillaries, it goes from one large "tube"

It is well-known that the blood slows down when it reaches the capillaries (a good thing, too--this fact improves the O2 and CO2 exchange that takes place between the blood and the tissues when the blood is in the capillaries). We are used to seeing fluids speed up when the tube is narrowed (like in the case of a nozzle). How can we explain why blood slows down when it enters the capillaries? Assume the flow is free of resistance. Please support your answer with diagrams. For those of you who have had AP&P this answer should be automatic.

Re v2r

Where "" is the density of the fluid moving at speed "v" and a dynamic viscosity "". 4) Real fluids have layers that travel at different speeds are can be characterized as being

Chrome steel ball bearings of weight "mg" and radius "r" will be dropped into a viscous medium and the terminal velocity "v" will be measured. Because the fluid density is significant compared to that of the ball bearings buoyancy must be considered. The interaction and force diagram are shown below. Terminal velocity is a constant velocity, therefore we expect: F = ma = 0 = Fdv + Fb + Fg = +Fdv + Fb - Fg Fdv + Fb = Fg where

A despondent beetle, intent on committing insecticide, climbs up the stalk of a milkweed plant. With its legs tucked in, it approximates a sphere, 1 mm in diameter, and has a mass of 0.5 mg. 2) If the beetle jumps what will a plot of its acceleration versus time look like? 3) Rank the magnitudes of difference forces acting on the beetle just BEFORE it reaches

terminal velocity: weight Fg, buoyancy Fb, viscous drag Fdv, and pressure drag Fdp. To accurately estimate this you will need to google the coefficient of drag for a sphere and the viscosity of air. Cdsphere = 0.47 air = 1.8x10-5 Pl. a) Fg > Fdp > Fdv > Fb b) Fg > Fb > Fdp > Fdv c) Fg = Fdp > Fdv > Fb d) Fg > Fdp > Fb > Fdv e) Fg > Fdv > Fdp > Fb

4) If the beetle jumps, how fast will it fall when it achieves terminal velocity? Is it likely to be

doing a truly terminal act? a) 4.5m/s, no b) 29 m/s, yes probably c) 0.00045 m/s, no d) 21 m/s, yes probably e) 140 m/s, yes definitely

Basic Worksheet B: Viscous Drag 1) Calculate the viscosity of honey from the following experiment. A butter knife with 25cm2

area drags a 5mm thick layer of honey across a very flat piece of toast. The force required to pull the knife is exerted by the mass attached by a string. It takes 5 seconds for the square knife to travel the length of the blade.

a) Interaction and force diagram the forces on the blade.

b) Solve for the speed of the blade.

c) Determine the shear force on the honey.

d) Calculate the viscosity of the honey in Poiseuille (Pl), poise (P) and centipoises (cp). Compare it with an answer you find on-line. Is your answer reasonable?

e) Honey's viscosity is temperature dependent, as is its density. If viscosity measures the making and breaking of bonds, explain why increased temperature decreases the viscosity of honey.

An insect trap consists of deep jar of alcohol. Spherical beetles climb in and sink to the bottom at constant speed where they are trapped and expire. The beetle size is about 1cm, vt=0.5m/s, =900kg/m3, and the viscosity of alcohol is about 0.001Pas. Also: 6) A beetle sinks because

a) A beetle has greater density than the oil. b) The oil makes and breaks bonds with a beetle. c) A beetle has greater weight than the oil. d) A beetle's buoyant force is greater than its weight e) The oil makes insufficient collisions with the beetle to keep it afloat.

6) Select the force diagram that correctly depicts the forces on the beetle at terminal velocity. Key: Fg = weight, Fb = buoyancy, Fv = Bernoulli force, Fdp = pressure drag, Fdv = viscous drag. Forces are to scale.

Advanced Worksheet A: Pressure and Viscous Drag 1) In a desperate attempt to hide treasure from the allied forces in World War II, the Nazis

dropped gold bullion into deep alpine lakes.

a) Interaction and force diagram all the forces acting on a solid gold cannonball as it sinks in water. The four forces should add up to zero when you have finished drawing your force diagram in the grid at right.

b) Rank the forces from largest to smallest explaining your prediction.

c) Write down algebraic equations for each force below (weight, buoyancy, viscous drag and pressure drag). Information you will need: area of hemisphere 2r2 (m2) and volume

of a sphere

Vsphere =43r3 (m3).

d) At terminal velocity F=0 for the cannonball. Set up a quadratic equation to solve for the velocity "v". A quadratic equation is of the form av2 + bv + c = 0

e) Solve for the value of each force assuming r = 10cm and the terminal velocity is 7.1m/s.

Write down your answer in the following format (weight is done for you). You will need the density of water "" (kg/m3), viscosity "" of water (Pl), and coefficient of drag "Cd" (unitless) for a sphere (find using web search).

f) Rank the forces. Were your predictions correct? Which force (after weight) was most important? Could you have simplified your expression for terminal velocity?

2) A hemispherical parachute made of an air-impervious material is 8.0 m in diameter. The mass of parachute and load combined is 80 kg. (Assume a drag coefficient of 1.42 based on frontal area facing flow and the viscosity of air is 1.8x10-5Pl) a) How fast will the parachute descend in still air assuming pressure drag dominates?

b) How fast will the parachute descend in still air assuming viscous drag dominates?

c) Calculate the Reynolds number based on these two calculations and determine whether pressure drag or viscous drag dominates:

d) How far would an object with no drag have to fall to reach this same speed as it accelerates from rest? (Landing with a parachute will thus involve about the same impact as would a downward free jump of this distance.)

3) Trees and vines have pipes ("xylem") that convey water upward from roots to leaves. Let us

assume that these pipes are cylindrical in cross section, that they run vertically, and that they are functionally uninterrupted. a) Assume that as water ascends due to the force from root pressure "Fp" the loss of pressure

due to change in gravitational force "Fg" is just equal to that due to pipe resistance "Fdv" (the latter according to Hagen-Poiseuille's Law). That is, the total pressure drop will be half gravitational and half viscous. Which set of force diagrams accurately depicts the forces acting on water molecules as they are pumped upwards through the xylem?
