- This semester we will make use of index notation alongside standard vector notation.
Detailed notes describing the properties and some uses of index notation are given
here.

- In order to help you better understand fluid mechanics, we have prepared a glossary of terms, phenomena, dimensionless numbers, etc., that we will be using this term. If you memorize this material, you will be far along the path to better understanding fluids! The glossary is given
here. To help you learn all the terms, I have prepared a set of quizzes that you can access from the class page in Sakai. These are not assigned, but are very helpful. To encourage you to do them (and submit as often as you like), edible prizes will be distributed to the top 6 scorers as of midnight on 8/22/21 (in the event of ties, the award will go to whoever posts the score first).

- In addition to class readings, I recommend that you further explore interesting
topics in transport phenomena by using the resources available on the web. To this
end, each day's lecture will also have a link to a website I found interesting. An index
of these sites is provided here.

A pdf version of the notes is given here. I strongly recommend that you print them out and bind them at Kinko's, or use one of the online services. There's about 400 pages, so if you don't mind reading in a more compressed manner, a four per sheet version is given here. They are useful to scribble on, and you will likely find them a useful reference in the future!

*Transport phenomena,*New York, Wiley, 2006 edition.- This is an update (after 40 years!) of -the- classic text on transport phenomena. Although at a high level, it provides
excellent development and applications of the microscopic equations governing transport. Many chemical engineers find this to be a useful reference text in
their later careers. I still fish mine out some four decades after first taking
transport. The international version is acceptable for this course.
Chapters 1-8 are appropriate for this course.

Our scheduled in-person class will be reserved for demonstrations, stories, answering questions, help on homework, etc. - all the fun stuff. We will also be solving the "problem of the day" in class to give you extra practice in setting up and solving things.
