The Chief guest started his lecture by interacting with students. He asked various terms involved fluids at rest and fluids in motion. Students responded very happily. He explained the role of Ionosphere in the field of communication. Further he spoke on Viscosity, Surface tension, Eddy current in fluids, tornado, cyclone and the differences between tornado and cyclone. He spoke on the application of eddy current.

Also he explained about the difference between streamline flow of liquid and turbulent flow of liquids. In his lecture he covered all the area which includes wave motion, surface waves, internal waves, sound waves in liquids, Aerodynamics and hydrodynamics which includes wake of a ship.

Students eagerly and enthusiastically interacted with him and got highly benefited out of his lecture. The program came to an end with the vote of thanks proposed by Mr. Gurumoorthy P.
