Fluid Mechanics – Merle Potter, David Wiggert – 3rd Edition


The way the authors approach this topic was designed so that the student understands and acquires the skills to analyze the phenomena that today the engineers face in the daily practice. To achieve this, they used pedagogical tools (marginal notes, outlines of each of the chapters, summaries at the end of them and a list of the nomenclature of the symbols) that contribute to the student visualizing the processes involved in mechanics of fluids, which are often difficult to understand.
