Fluid mechanics is the study of the motion of fluids and the forces that leads to these motions. It can be further classified into two categories: fluid statics (studies of fluids at rest) and fluid dynamics (studies of fluids in motion). The "fluid" in the term fluid mechanics is defined to be "a substance which deforms continuously under the action of a shear stress", which includes both liquids and gases.
