__Fluid Work Formula:__

Fluid work is a concept in fluid dynamics and thermodynamics that refers to the work done by or on a fluid as it moves through a system under pressure.

It is a critical parameter in engineering disciplines like hydraulic systems, pneumatics, and fluid transport systems.

The work done by a fluid is calculated based on the pressure applied, the cross-sectional area through which the fluid moves, and the distance it travels.

Fluid work, W_{(J)} in joules is calculated by the product of fluid pressure, p_{(N/m2)} in Newton per metre square, area, A_{(m2)} in metre square and distance, s_{(m)} in metres, m.

Fluid work, W_{(J)} = p_{(N/m2)} * A_{(m2)} * s_{(m)}

W_{(J)} = fluid work in joules, J.

p_{(N/m2)} = fluid pressure in Newton metres square, N/m^{2}.

A_{(m2)} = area in metres square, m^{2}.

s_{(m)} = distance in metres, m.

__Fluid Work Calculation:__

- Calculate the fluid work done by a hydraulic press:

Given: p_{(N/m2)} = 200,000N/m^{2}, A_{(m2)} = 0.5 m^{2}, s_{(m)} = 0.2 m

Fluid work, W_{(J)} = p_{(N/m2)} * A_{(m2)} * s_{(m)}

W_{(J)} = 200,000 * 0.5 * 0.2

W_{(J)} = 20,000J.

- Determine the distance a fluid has moved given the work done and the system’s pressure and area:

Given: W_{(J)} = 5000 Joules, p_{(N/m2)} = 100,000N/m^{2}, A_{(m2)} = 0.1 m^{2}

Fluid work, W_{(J)} = p_{(N/m2)} * A_{(m2)} * s_{(m)}

s_{(m)} = W_{(J)} / p_{(N/m2)} * A_{(m2)}

s_{(m)} = 5000 / 100,000 * 0.1

s_{(m)} = 0.5m.
