**Example text**

An absolute pressure of zero implies vacuum while a gauge pressure of zero implies atmospheric pressure. In a fluid at rest, tangential viscous stresses are absent and the only force between adjacent surfaces is normal to the surface. We shall now demonstrate that in such a case the surface force per unit area (or pressure) is equal in all directions. 5) of unit thickness normal to the paper, and let p1, p2, and p3 be the pressures on the three faces. The z-axis is taken vertically upward. The only forces acting on the element are the pressure forces normal to the faces and the weight of the element.

14) means that we regard h as a function of p and T, and find the partial derivative of h with respect to T, keeping p constant. 15) has an analogous interpretation. The specific heats as defined are thermodynamic properties because they are defined in terms of other properties of the system. That is, Cp and Cv can be determined when two other system properties (say, p and T) are known. For certain processes common in fluid flows, the heat exchange can be related to the specific heats. 11). Dividing by the change of temperature, it follows that the heat transferred per unit mass per unit temperature change in a constant volume process is ðvQ=vTÞv ¼ ðve=vTÞv ¼ Cv : This shows that Cv dT represents the heat transfer per unit mass in a reversible constantvolume process, in which the only type of work done is of the pdy type.

This is a reasonable assumption in the lower 70 km of the atmosphere, where the absolute temperature generally remains within 15% of 250 K. 22) require dp=dz ¼ Àrg ¼ Àpg=RT: When g, R, and T are constants, integration gives pðzÞ ¼ p0 eÀgz=RT , where p0 is the pressure at z ¼ 0. The pressure therefore falls to eÀ1 of its surface value in a height H ¼ RT/g. Thus, the quantity RT/g is called the scale height of the atmosphere, and it provides a reasonable quantitative measure of the thickness of the atmosphere.
