Properties of the Atmosphere The performance of an aircraft depends on the density and viscosity of the atmosphere in which it operates. The density in turn depend on pressure and temperature, while viscosity depends on temperature. Density is the amount

Continuity Equation (Conservation of Mass)
There are several physical conservation laws that we use to predict the behavior of a
fluid. In Chapter 1 we discussed Newtons's Second Law ( F = ma ) which is really a
statement of the conservation of momentum,
