Gain an understanding of fluid mechanics and the ability to analyze this important phenomena encountered by practicing engineers with MECHANICS OF FLUIDS, 5E.

The authors use proven learning tools to help you visualize many difficult-to-understand aspects of fluid mechanics. The mathematics used in derivations are readily accessible to you as an undergraduate engineering student. This edition's accompanying Multimedia Fluid Mechanics DVD-ROM helps you gain insights and develop intuition about fluid flow as you view mathematical relationships through movies and conduct actual simulations.

The book's companion website includes mini-exams and solutions as well as video tutorials to assist you in further mastering fluid mechanics as an emerging professional.
Industry Reviews
"I like it (the level of presentation). The students appear to like it. The boxes in the margins are nice in that they point out the key concepts. I use the book in my class and have used it for a number of years."
"The text is written at a level that provides more than adequate materials for the very good students and "required" basics for the average student. Progression in presenting the topics and sections of chapters is smooth. The text is balanced in exposing theoretical materials followed by examples/illustrations. Texts in fluids mechanics have evolved over many years to do this and this text does a great job of this. Examples and their frequency/breadth of coverage is appropriate. The problem-solving methodology in the examples is done extremely well. Illustrations are very well done."
"There are many learning benefits to this textbook, viz. Key Concepts, Margin definitions, Fundamentals of Engineering problem section. However, the unique approach that Drs. Potter and Wiggert take to breakdown complex concepts of fluid mechanics and provide an easy to follow and succinate textbook is amazing. The authors have done an exceptional job in assembling a comprehensive textbook. One of the strongest attributes of this textbook is the addition of FE/EIT exam examples. The authors do not teach to the FE exam, but rather enhance their product with the addition of these examples. Without question, these two (Drs. Potter and Wiggert) are the exemplary instructors that every engineering college envisions. The highlights of "key concepts" and margin definition are a benefit for both student and instructor. This is a difficult topic from many lower-division engineering students. The presentation by the authors is the most comprehensive yet straightforward approach I have seen to date. Readability and presentation of complex concepts is a true strength of this textbook."
