- apply the Bernoulli equation to sets of fluid problems;
- solve energy balances in the context of fluids and fluid motion;
- distinguish between approximations of and appropriate models for Bernoulli’s Equation (i.e friction losses, pumps, compressors, turbines, surface forces, gas-liquid flow, non-Newtonian fluids, and the Moody diagram);
- apply momentum balances using the governing equations of momentum to solve one dimensional velocity profile problems of external or internal viscous fluid flow;
