The Continuity Equation
Pp. 74-81 (8)
Starting from this chapter and to the end of the first part we are building a
closed system of equations of a fluid model. Firstly, we discuss differential
conservation laws, and related balance equations. All previously obtained expressions
are applied then to the mass of a body, and this gives the first equation of the fluid
model, the continuity equation.
