Basic Fluid Mechanics
101040010108001011107Basic Fluid MechanicsThe basic equations governing fluid flow are the conservation of mass, the conservation of energy, and conservation of linear momentum equations. These are derived using a control volume of fluid. By keeping track of the transport of mass, momentum, and energy across the system boundaries, we arrive at the following conservation principles.
Conservation of Mass The statement of the conservation of mass, better known as the Continuity equation, may be stated as—the rate of mass of fluid entering the system m…
