Closed System (Control Mass) • No mass can cross system boundary • Energy may cross system boundary • Volume is NOT fixed • The system is said “isolated” if there is no exchange between this system and its surroundings

Open System/Control Volume • Mass may cross system boundary (control surface) • Volume may/may not be fixed • Energy may cross system boundary Control Volumes may operate at steady state, or change with time (empty/fill)
