Fluid Properties
1 Density
1.1 Definition
1.1.1 Quantitative: Mass per unit volume. Density can also be described as how closely and tightly packed the material may be.
1.2 Useful Equation
1.2.1 Density = Mass/Volume
1.3 Below: Diagram illustrating the density.
2 Specific Gravity
2.1 Definition
2.1.1 Ratio of how dense a substance might be comparatively to density of water
2.2 Useful Equation
2.2.1 SG = (Density of Material)/(Density of Water)
3 Vapor Pressure
3.1 Definition
3.1.1 Vapor pressure is maximum pressure at which above this pressure, water will undergo boiling.
3.2 Properties of Vapor Pressure
3.2.1 Vapor pressure is always dependent on temperature. The higher the temperature goes, the higher the vapor pressure.
4 Application In Industry
4.1 Specific Gravity of a fluid tells us how much lighter or heavier it is than water. Hence, a lighter oil means less cost of transportation, which can optimize the cost of transportation.
4.2 Knowing the vapor pressure of a fluid helps in avoiding cavitation in pipelines.
