Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines by RK Rajput PDF

Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics that deals with the behavior of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) at rest and in motion. Hydraulic machines are devices that use fluid power to perform work, such as pumps, turbines, valves, and actuators. Fluid mechanics and hydraulic machines are important topics for engineering students, especially for those who are interested in mechanical, civil, chemical, or aerospace engineering.
