Fluid Mechanics – Merle Potter, David Wiggert – 3rd Edition


The way the authors approach this topic was designed so that the student understands and acquires the skills to analyze the that today the face in the daily . To achieve this, they used pedagogical (marginal notes, outlines of each of the chapters, summaries at the end of them and a list of the nomenclature of the symbols) that contribute to the student visualizing the processes involved in mechanics of , which are often difficult to understand.
