This book is one of the most stimulating books on fluid mechanics that I have come across. It is very carefully written and well organized. The physics behind the phenomena are vividly explained. The subject is, mathematically not difficul. Excellent problems at the end of each chapter.

Lots of good problems but lacks enough explanations in some cases, and only decent derivations for equations.

This book represents my first foray into fluid mechanics. I don't really read my textbooks too much--in general I find them boring and hard to learn from--but I have done the many of the problems from the first few chapters. While the problems are good and there are a lot of them in each chapter, for the most part they are formulaic and repetative. While this is good for learning the material at first, it does get tedious after a while. For the purposes of a class like the one I'm in, this textbook does well, although I think I would need better if I were attempting to learn this material on my own.

I am currently taking Fluid Mechanics in pursuit of a ME degree. The teacher suddenly decided to switch to this book after previous teachers used the cengel book. When the semester is over, I will be selling back this one and i will buy the cengel book. The tables are hard to find in the back, the cengel book makes it easier to find them. The inside covers are the most valuable pages for conversions..etc, this book does not use them at all, All of the chapters do not directly explain any concepts, or give any examples worth going through...overall very bad book, do not buy it unless you have to

Five years ago, I took my first course in fluid mechanics using this book by F. White; now I am a graduate student in the field. This book was the first to instill upon me a desire to pursue advanced studies in the dynamics of fluids.

The major strength of this book is that it is remarkably un-assuming of the reader. Most of the topics discussed are self-contained with much of the physics and mathematics expressed within accessible bounds to a young, becoming Mechanical Engineer. In particular, the book contains many good, fully worked-out examples and problems.

To begin, the first section is on hydrostatics, and although the physics is fairly simple, we observe how to deal with the difficulties of handling the geometry of the system. In particular, we learn how to calculate force and moment on a dam of varying profile.

The next section focuses on control volume (CV) analysis: this systematic technique of problem solving is perhaps the monkey wrench of mechanical engineering. A very very large number of problems can be solved with this approach, and many more can be approximated with it. F. White does a fantastic job of using CV analysis with regards to the most important physical quantities: momentum, moment, energy, and mass. Again, the book is filled with a number of fully-worked examples and even more end-of-chapter problems.

We next move into the heart of fluid dynamics, that is the differential equations of momentum and mass. Here, the author takes a lot of care in deriving the partial differential equations (PDE's) with the aid of numerous illustrations. Illustrations in engineering context cannot be under-estimated, and the author seems whole-heartedly agree.

I bought the book for class, so I didn't really have a choice. It goes into a lot of derivation, which isn't really my thing. I got mine from Hudson Books and they were great. Brand new book for a used price! There are a lot of pictures of different devices and phenomena that really help with understanding. The only problem I really had, besides lengthy derivations, was that the notation for some properties was different that most of my other textbook.

I bought this book for my Fluid Mechanics class because it was required by the professor. Stay away from this textbook. The explanations are terrible and hidden in the text. Some formulas are derived, some aren't even explained. Very few example problems, most of which are very obscure and not explained well or related to the section. The topics jump without any sort of connections, not just chapter to chapter, but also within the chapters. This probably ties for the worst textbook I've ever used.

If you want to do well in Fluids, stay away from this book. If you absolutely have to buy it, consider buying a 2nd book for reference.
