[*]Greater number of solved examples than most competing texts. [*]Good emphasis on practical problems, and 25% new homework problems. [*]Early introduction of Bernoulli Equation. [*]Each example problem is completely solved using a problem statement, detailed solution and often giving a brief discussion of related principles from real life situations. This practical problem solving methodology is used to promote students' reasoning skills. [*]E-Text. Each new copy of the fourth edition includes a free CD-ROM containing the e-Text-the entire print component of the book in searchable PDF format, plus additional material not in the print version. [*] Fluid Mechanics Phenomena brings [COLOR=orange! important][COLOR=orange! important]fluid [COLOR=orange! important]mechanics[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] to life! A series of 80 short video segments on the CD illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics. The videos are linked within the e-Text directly to those sections and problems that will most benefit from these illustrations:
[list] [*]Many of the segments show how fluid motion relates to familiar devices and everyday experiences. [*]Each segment also clearly indicates the key fluid mechanics topic being demonstrated and provides a description of the *******.
[*]Review Problems with Complete Solutions. Each chapter in the e-Text provides students with 10-20 review problems that link directly to complete detailed solutions for extra guidance in problem-solving. In addition, the review problems are identified by the basic principle they demonstrate, allowing students easy reference to areas they need to review.
