represents the distance from the z
Kinematics of Fluids
MAE 250A, J. D. Eldredge
Once we accept the premise that a uid is a continuum, then we use the language of continuum
mechanics to describe the uids motion. In particular, we regard a uid as an innite collection
of innitesimal parcels

Reynolds Transport Theorem
MAE 250A, J. D. Eldredge
In uid dynamics we are often interested in the rate of change of the total amount of a quantity,
f , in an arbitrary control volume, V (t). The goal of this note is to derive an expression for this
rate
