  • Description

    A Textbook Of Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines : SI Units 4th Edition is a book that brings together concepts, explanations, solved questions, and practice problems to help students get a strong grasp over the subject. Those appearing for competitive exams or university tests will benefit tremendously by studying from it.

    Summary Of The Book

    A Textbook Of Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines : SI Units 4th Edition, published in 1998, contains the latest information on the subject. The book has sixteen chapters, and is divided into two parts. The first covers chapters on Fluid Mechanics, some of which are Buoyancy and Floatation, Flow Through Orifices and Mouthpieces, Turbulent Flow in Pipes, and Compressible Flow. The second half of the book is on Hydraulic Machines. Chapters included in this section are Impact of Free Jets, Centrifugal Pumps, Reciprocating Pumps, and Miscellaneous Hydraulic Machines.

    The text of the book is accompanied by self-explanatory figures to make it easier for students to grasp the fundamental concepts. A Textbook Of Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines : SI Units 4th Edition also contains many solved examples, including the types that usually appear in university and competitive examinations. The solutions are also graded to expose students to the weightage of each step. Every chapter ends with Highlights, Objective Type Questions, subjective questions, and unsolved examples. These have been added to the textbook in order to make it a complete unit. The language used by Rajput is clear, easy-to-understand, and direct.

    Students preparing for their university tests, or competitive examinations will find A Textbook Of Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines : SI Units 4th Edition to be of great help. Revising important concepts from the Highlights, and solving the problems sets will give candidates the opportunity to understand the material, revise it, solve questions, and test themselves. This will build confidence, and help to excel in the final examinations.

    my experience

    I am feeling very happy with your product "A Textbook of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines in SI Units" at low price Rs.615 than marketprice Rs.700.
    I am told to my firends to buy that book in your online megastore but YOU are increased price for that same product so they are not interested to buy that product. So, my advice is that it is better to decrease the price to get more cutomers for you and it is beneficial for you and your customers.
    Thanks for giving me this oppurtunity
