Newtonian Fluids

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


The Newtonian fluids are special types of linear Newtonian deformable bodies which we shall define in an exact physical sense presently. Practically every Newtonian deformable body may be considered as a fluid with certain properties. Therefore it is better that we continue with the term fluid in a vague manner until we end up with a definition. For the time being we consider a fluid to be an aggregate of a great number of particles (a continuum) which moves under the mutual interaction of its particles and the application of external forces.
