Constant density and viscosity : NavierStokes equation (con.) 2 D p Dt = + + u u g ( ) Introducing the force potential gh = = g where is the elevation and the gravitational potential engergy per unit mass h gh ( ) 2 2 gives D p gh P Dt = + + = + u u u Note : for gas flow, absolute pressure could be related to gas density through the PVT relation for gas. For liquid flow, pressure gradient remains determinate by the equation of motion, and absolute pressure in the whole domain could only be determined if the pressure is known at some point in the domain.

Indeed, consider a hypothetical static reference state in which the density is everywhere and the pressure is .
