Balance equations in fluid dynamics

 In this section21.2 we will take a closer look to basic differential equations of fluid dynamics. The flow of a viscous fluid is governed by conservation of mass (continuity equation), conservation of momentum (Navier-Stokes equation), conservation of energy (energy equation). The system of equations is closed by the state equation and thermodynamic relations.
