PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION
In the second edition, the book has been thoroughly revised and enlarged. Additional typical problems based on the examination papers of various technical universities have been included with solutions for easy understanding by the students. I thank all the faculty members of Mechanical Department of GNIT, Greater Noida for their assistance in completing the second edition of the book. I once again request students and teachers to send constructive suggestions and criticism by emailing at channi-sawhney hotmail.com

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION
Fluid Mechanics is an important subject which has been given equal weightage in Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, and Aeronautical undergraduate engineering curriculum. It deals with the flow of fluids. This book is designed to explain the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in the areas of properties of fluids, pressure and its measurements, hydrostatic forces, buoyancy, dimensional analysis, hydraulic similitude and model studies, fluid kinematics, fluid dynamics, laminar and turbulent flows, boundary layer analysis, flow through pipes, ideal fluid flow and flow past submerged bodies. Efforts have been made to cover the syllabi of several universities. Based on my teaching experience, I have tried to explain principles and concepts of Fluid Mechanics in simple and clear terms. The endeavour is to present the subject matter in the most comprehensive and useable form. The derivation of fundamental relations has been kept as simple as possible. Diagrams have been used abundantly to elucidate the difficult concepts which cannot be explained effectively. The theory is further supported with illustrations and suitably worked out examples. The book has an easy-to-read style, as it is written in question-answer form that is going to benefit the readers immensely. I express my gratitude to K.K Aggarwal, Chairman, and Dr. A.M. Chandra, Director, Lord Krishna College of Engineering, Ghaziabad for their support and encouragement extended to me during the compilation of this book. I am grateful to my doctoral guide, Dr. Prasad, Galgotia Engineering College, Greater Noida for moral support extended to me. Above all, I wish to record my sincere thanks to my wife, Jasbeer Kaur for her patience shown throughout the preparation of the book. I would appreciate constructive suggestions and objective criticism from students and teachers alike with a view to enhance further usefulness of the book.
