Fluid Statics deal with the study of fluids when they are at rest. It is assumed to be incompressible and in stable equilibrium condition. When fluids are at rest, there is no relative motion between the layers of fluid. This means the value of shear force is zero. Fluid statics is also termed as Hydrostatics.
