A fluid is any liquid or gas that cannot sustain a shearing force when at rest and that undergoes a continuous change in shape when subjected to such a stress.

Compressed fluids exert an outward pressure that is perpendicular to the walls of their containers. A perfect fluid lacks viscosity, but real fluids do not.
