Book Description:

**Introduction to Fluid Mechanics** book by the author Robert W. Fox continues to provide readers with a balanced and comprehensive approach to mastering critical concepts. This fluid mechanics book incorporates a proven problem-solving methodology that will help them develop an orderly plan to finding the right solution. It starts with basic equations, then clearly states assumptions, and finally, relates results to expected physical behavior. Many of the steps involved in analysis are simplified by using Excel.
