By how many newtons do you increase the weight of your car when you fill up your 11.5 gal gas tank with gasoline? A gallon is equal to 3.788 $\mathrm{L}$ and the density of gasoline is 737 $\mathrm{kg} / \mathrm{m}^{3}$ .

In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids.

A fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases and plasmas. Fluids display properties such as flow, pressure, and tension, which can be described with a fluid model. For example, liquids form a surface which exerts a force on other objects in contact with it, and is the basis for the forces of capillarity and cohesion. Fluids are a continuum (or "continuous" in some sense) which means that they cannot be strictly separated into separate pieces. However, there are theoretical limits to the divisibility of fluids. Fluids are in contrast to solids, which are able to sustain a shear stress with no tendency to continue deforming.

all right. So in this problem, we want to know how much a car's weight will go up when it's gas tank is filled and were given that the tank holds 11.5 gallons, one gallon takes up 3.7 a eight times sent the negative three meters cute a volume, and the density of gas is 737 kilograms per meter cubed. So the first thing that we need is to find the mass that's added to the car so and eyes going to be equal to the density times the volume. And then city, of course, is 7 37 and we need to use because of the units that the density is given and we need to convert gallons. Teo meters cubed so 3.788 times 10 to the negative. Three years cubed per gone. And we need this because the 11.5, um is given in units of gallons. So that's our mass and convert between mass and weight on Earth. We simply multiplied by the gravitational acceleration so the weight will be given Bye and times G where, um, is this expression that we calculated here 7 37 times, 11.5 times 3.78 times in the negative three and this gets more complied by G, which is 9.8 meters per second squared.
