This lesson covers the fundamental concepts of fluid kinematics, focusing on the motion of fluids. It delves into the two main approaches to describing fluid motion: the Lagrangian and Eulerian approaches. The lesson explains how these approaches are used to examine the positions of particles in relation to time and hydrodynamic parameters. It also discusses the visualization techniques used in fluid flow, such as streamline, path line, and streak line. The lesson further explores the concept of substantial derivative, which links the Lagrangian and Eulerian variables. It also covers the concepts of linear and angular deformation, and how they relate to velocity gradients. The lesson concludes with an explanation of the Reynolds transport theorem and the derivation of the continuity equation.

- Fluid kinematics studies the motion of fluids using two main approaches: Lagrangian and Eulerian.
- The Lagrangian approach involves tracking each particle and its position over time, while the Eulerian approach focuses on a specific region and tracks what comes in and goes out.
- Visualization techniques such as streamline, path line, and streak line are used to observe fluid flow.
- The substantial derivative is a key concept that links Lagrangian and Eulerian variables.
- Linear and angular deformation occur when a fluid element moves, and these can be represented in terms of velocity gradients.
- The Reynolds transport theorem is used to relate the system approach (Lagrangian) and the control volume approach (Eulerian).
- The continuity equation, derived from the Reynolds transport theorem, is a fundamental equation in fluid dynamics.
