Hence, this work will use both the English system of units as well as the SI equivalent in the text, tables, and numerical examples. Table 1 provides the units used to identify the basic dimensional quantities in each system, and Table 2 gives a conversion table for fluid properties and other commonly used quantities. 2 FLUID PROPERTIES Properties of fluids generally encountered in engineering practice are presented in tables and figures in this section. Included are the commonly used properties of density, specific gravity, bulk modulus (compressibility), viscosity, surface tension, and vapor pressure.

For example, oxygen has the molecular weight of 32 kg/mol. The specific gas constant of oxygen is calculated as R = 8314∕32 = 258 J/kg-K (compare with Table 4). 0929 m2 ∕s = 929 stokes Length: 1 in. 7 W Pressure: 1 psi = 6895 N∕m2 = 6895 Pa Pressure: 1 in. 4 mm Hg = 3386 N∕m2 Pressure: 1 in. 92 in.

However, the English FSS (foot–slug–second) system is still in widespread use throughout the United States. Hence, this work will use both the English system of units as well as the SI equivalent in the text, tables, and numerical examples.
