On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
1. explain the notions of local and convected rates of change;
2. calculate the vorticity of an ideal fluid flow;
3. evaluate the incompressibility condition for a given velocity field;
4. apply and solve the equations governing the flow of an ideal fluid in specific situations;
This module introduces and develops the basic concepts of Classical Hydrodynamics and provides a framework for a modern appreciation of Fluid Mechanics.
