The air is motionless relative to the ground. The observer sits at a fixed position on the ground. b) The control volume moves to the right at a velocity of 10 m/s with respect to the ground. The air is motionless relative to the ground. The observer sits in the frame of the control volume and moves with it. c) The control volume moves to the right at a velocity of 10 m/s with respect to the ground. The air is moving to the right at a velocity of 15 m/s relative to the ground. The observer sits at a fixed position on the ground. d) The control volume moves to the right at a velocity of 10 m/s with respect to the ground. The air is moving to the right at a velocity of 15 m/s relative to the ground. The observer sits in the frame of the control volume and moves with it. The areas of the right and left faces are both 0.01 m 2 . The density is 1000 kg/s. Be careful to specify the velocity and relative velocity on each face in each case. As there is no velocity in the other two directions, consider only variations in the x direction and only the x- momentum component. Solution: Mass flow always depends on relative velocity: ( ) = - CV CS rel dVol dt d dA n V a) The relative velocity between the right face and the air is:-10 m/s . The normal is in the positive direction. The mass flowing out through this face is -10*1000*0.01=-100 kg/s (i.e., the mass is flowing into the CV). (i....
