1  ELASTICITY

Enhance understanding of identifying and measuring properties of matter and knowledge of students’ initial and evolving ideas around the concepts of mass, volume, density, sinking/floating, melting/boiling, and solubility.  To cover elasticity, Hooke’s law, Elastic constants for an isotropic solid and their relations, Poisson’s ratio, Torsion of cylinder and twisting couple. Bending of beam, Kinematic of fluids, equation of continuity, Euler’s equation, Bernaulli’s theorm, capillary tube flow, Reynold’s number, Stoke’s law, Surface tension & surface energy and pressure on a curved liquids surface.
