Details

Liquids are actually quite rare in nature, when considered on a cosmic scale. Stars are plasmas (the fourth state of matter); giant planets are mainly gases, with frigid liquids occurring only at great depths below their cloud tops; terrestrial (small) planets are generally solid and rocky; and the giant molecular clouds found in interstellar space contain mostly hydrogen and helium gas. 

With a focus on several important liquids, including water, blood, oil, and mercury, Liquid Matter highlights the most important scientific principles upon which the field is based, and identifies the wide range of applications that fluid science plays in almost all professional scientific and engineering fields. 

Chapters include:

  • Liquid Matter—An Initial Perspective
  • Physical Characteristics of Liquids
  • Fundamentals of Fluid Science
  • Water—Nature's Most Amazing Molecule
  • The Oceans
  • Water—Its Power and Applications
  • Liquid Refreshments
  • Lethal Liquids
  • Volcanoes, Hot Springs, and Geysers
  • Very Cold Liquids.
