# Mechanics: Fluids

There are eight ready-to-use problem sets on the topic of Fluids. Most problems are multi-part problems requiring an extensive analysis. The problems target your ability to use the concepts of Newton’s Laws, the W=∆E relationships and the Conservation of Mass along with the definition of density and pressure to solve problems involving hydrostatic pressure and hydrodynamics.
