In this chapter, we will discuss about the velocity and acceleration of fluid particles which is based on continuum hypothesis.

Fluid Kinematics is the branch of engineering that deals with the study of movement of fluid particles in fluid.This motion of fluid particles possesses velocity, acceleration and other factors required tocause the motion.

In fluid Kinematics, the steady flow and unsteady flow of fluid particles are considered to find out the efficiency of fluids in converting one form of energy into another form.For this, different methods are used and fluid properties are also considered to know the variation in the motion of fluid particles.
