Fluid Flow: Laminar and Turbulent In laminar or streamline flow, each particle of fluid follows a smooth path, the streamline. Air flow over this Corvette is laminar until the end: the air cannot curve in completely at the back, it breaks away forming a turbulent wake.

Conservation of Fluid Suppose fluid is flowing steadily through a pipe which has a narrow section. The rate of flow , gallons per sec or cubic meters per sec, must be the same past a point in the narrow part as past a point in the wide part or fluid will be piling up somewhere! So it flows faster through
