DOC: SOLID MECHANICS


The application of the principles of mechanic s to bulk matter is conve ntionally divided into the mechanics of fluids and the mechanics of solids . The entire subject is often called continuum mechanics , particularly when we adopt the useful model of matter as being continuously divisible, making no reference to its discrete structure at microscopic length scales well below those of the application or phenomenon of interest....

  TENSORS & THEIR APPLICATIONS

... ‘TENSORS’ WERE INTRODUCED BY PROFESSOR GREGORIO RICCI OF UNIVERSITY OF PADUA (ITALY) IN 1887 PRIMARILY AS EXTENSION OF VECTORS. A QUANTITY HAVING MAGNITUDE ONLY IS CALLED SCALAR AND A QUANTITY WITH MAGNITUDE AND DIRECTION BOTH, CALLED VECTOR. BUT CERTAIN QUANTITIES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH TWO OR MORE DIRECTIONS, SUCH A QUANTITY IS CALLED TENSOR. THE STRESS AT A POINT OF AN ELASTIC SOLID IS AN EXAMPLE OF A TENSOR WHICH DEPENDS ON TWO DIRECTIONS ONE NORMAL TO THE AREA AND OTHER THAT OF THE FORCE ON IT. ...

  SURFACE TENSION OF LIQUIDS MEASURED WITH THE STALAGMOMETER

... THE MOLECULES OF LIQUIDS ATTRACT EACH OTHER BY COHESIVE FORCES RESULTING INTO SMALL DISTANCES BETWEEN THE MOLECULES (ON THE ORDER OF 0.1 NM). THU S THE COMPRESSIBILITY OF LIQUIDS IS LOWER THEN THAT OF GAS, WHILE THE DENSITY IS MUCH HIGHER. ON THE OTHER HAND, THESE COHESIVE FORCES ARE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO RESULT INTO THE FIXED POSITION OF MOLECULES THAT CAN BE SEEN IN SOLID MATTER. LIQUIDS DO NOT KEE P A FIXED SHAPE, BUT ADAPT THE SHAPE OF A CONTAINER. ...

... WHAT IS A PERSUASIVE/ARGUMENT ESSAY? IN PERSUASIVE WRITING, A WRITER TAKES A POSITION FOR OR AGAINST AN ISSUE AND WRITES TO CONVINCE THE READER TO BELIEVE OR DO SOMETHING PERSUASIVE WRITING, ALSO KNOWN AS THE ARGUMENT ESSAY, UTI LIZES LOGIC AND REASON TO SHOW THAT ONE IDEA IS MORE LEGITIMATE THAN ANOTHER IDEA. IT AT TEMPTS TO PERSUADE A READER TO ADOPT A CERTAIN POINT OF VIEW OR TO TAKE A PARTICULAR ACTION. THE ARGUMENT MUST ALWAYS USE SOUND REASONING AND SOLID EVIDENCE BY STATING FACTS, GIVING LOG ICAL REASONS, USING EXAMPLES, AND QUOTING EXPERTS. ...
