It is found experimentally that all the components of fluid velocity (not just thenormal component) vanish at a wall. No matter how small the viscosity, the large velocity gradients near a wall ... More

Euler derived the fundamental equations of an ideal fluid, that is, in the absence of friction (viscosity). They describe the conservation of momentum. We can derive from it the equation for the ... More
