Even when the air within the bottle is completely still, these molecules are constantly colliding with each other and with the bottle walls; on average, their speed is equal to the speed of sound: approximately \SI[per-mode = symbol]{1000}{\kilo\metre\per\hour}. ... ... @@ -50,7 +50,7 @@ Adopting this point of view, which is named the \vocab{continuum abstraction}, is not a trivial decision, because the physical laws which determine the behavior of molecules are very different from those which determine the behavior of elements of fluid. For example, in fluid mechanics we never consider any inter-element attraction or repulsion forces; while new forces “appear” due to pressure or shear effects that do not exist at a molecular level. \xkcdthumb{2283}{how (not) to picture big numbers}{0.5} A direct benefit of the continuum abstraction is that the mathematical complexity of our problems is greatly simplified. Finding the solution for the bottle of “still air” mentioned above, for example, requires only a single equation (\cref{eq_gradp} p.~\pageref{eq_gradp}) instead of a system of \num{2e22} equations with \num{2e22} unknowns (all leading up to $\vec{V}_{\text{average}, x, y, z, t} = \vec{0}$!).

Another consequence is that we cannot treat a fluid as if it were a mere set of marbles with no interaction which would hit objects as they move by. Instead we must think of a fluid –even a low-density fluid such as atmospheric air– as an infinitely-flexible medium able to fill in almost instantly all of the space made available to it. ... ... @@ -135,7 +135,7 @@ \vec M &\equiv& \vec r \wedge \vec F \end{IEEEeqnarray} See Appendix ~\ref{ch_vector_cross_product} p.~\pageref{ch_vector_cross_product} for a short briefing about the dot product of vectors.
