    0.1 Derivation of Added Mass around a SphereWhen a body moves in a fluid, some amount of fluidmust move around it. When the body accelerates, sotoo must the fluid. Thus, more force is required to ac-celerate the body in the fluid than in a vacuum. Sinceforce equals mass times acceleration, we can think ofthe additional force in terms of an imaginary addedmass of the object in the fluid.

    One can derive the added mass of an object byconsidering the hydrodynamic force acting on it as itaccelerates. Consider a sphere of radius, R, acceler-

    ating at rate U/t = U. We find the hydrodynamicforce in the x-direction by integrating the pressureover the area projected in the x-direction:

    Fx =

    p d Ax

    where

    d Ax = cos dA, dA = 2rds, r = R sin , ds = Rd

    p = t +

    0.2 Derivation of Added Mass around a Cylinder

    Similarly, for a cylinder of radius, R,and length, L, accelerating at rate U.We find the hydrodynamic force inthe x-direction by integrating the pres-sure over the area projected in the x-direction:

    Fx =

    Pd Ax

    where

    d Ax = cos dA

    dA = Lds

    ds = Rd

    P = t + 12 ||2, by unsteady Bernoullis equation = UR

    = R2LU

    where a = U is the acceleration of the body, and the negative sign indicates that the force is in the negativex-direction, opposing the acceleration. Thus, the body must exert this extra force, and the apparent addedmass is

    ma = R2L
