What is the difference between Fluid and Velocity?

The difference between fluid and velocity

is that “fluid” is any substance which can flow with relative ease, tends to assume the shape of its container, and obeys Bernoulli’s principle; a liquid, gas or plasma and “velocity” is a vector quantity that denotes the rate of change of position with respect to time, or a speed with the directional component.

velocity

Noun

  • Any substance which can flow with relative ease, tends to assume the shape of its container, and obeys Bernoulli’s principle; a liquid, gas or plasma.
  • A liquid (as opposed to a solid or gas).
  • (specifically, medicine, colloquial, typically in the plural) Intravenous fluids.

Exemple

  • An extreme version of vorticity is a vortex. The vortex is a spinning, cyclonic mass of fluid, which can be observed in the rotation of water going down a drain, as well as in smoke rings, tornados and hurricanes.
  • fluid inclusion Petrology, a tiny fluid- or gas-filled cavity in an igneous rock. 1-100 micrometers in diameter, formed by the entrapment of a fluid, typically that from which the rock crystallized.
  • For studying interfaces between solid and another solid, fluid, or gas, a sample can be oriented with its reflecting surface vertical .
  • Tenderness: is the lump tender?
  • Composition: is the mass solid, fluid or gas?
  • The choke manifold then expels the fluid or gas to the gas buster or a panic line. The panic line will then either send the fluid or gas to the reserve pit or a flare stack or flare tank.

Adjective

  • (not comparable) Of or relating to fluid.
  • In a state of flux; subject to change.
  • Moving smoothly, or giving the impression of a liquid in motion.
  • (of an asset) Convertible into cash.
  • (rare) Genderfluid.

Synonyms

  • (of or relating to fluid): fluidical, liquid; fluidic
  • (subject to change): unstable, variable; changeable
  • (moving smoothly): fluent, fluxive; flowing or Thesaurus:runny

Exemple

  • Economics is a messy discipline: too fluid to be a science, too rigorous to be an art. Perhaps it is fitting that economists’ most-used metric, gross domestic product , is a tangle too. GDP measures the total value of output in an economic territory. Its apparent simplicity explains why it is scrutinised down to tenths of a percentage point every month.
  • “Oh, Loki made sure of that. My mortal parents blamed him for the way I was, for being fluid."

Noun

  • (physics) A vector quantity that denotes the rate of change of position with respect to time, or a speed with the directional component.
  • Rapidity of motion.
  • The rate of occurrence.
  • (economics) The number of times that an average unit of currency is spent during a specific period of time.

Synonyms

  • speed
