3–6C Consider two identical fans, one at sea level and the other on top of a
high mountain, running at identical speeds.
How would you compare (a) the volume flow rates and (b) the mass flow
rates of these two fans?

4–77C True or false: For each statement, choose whether the statement is
true or false and discuss your answer briefly.
(a) The Reynolds transport theorem is useful for transforming conservation
equations from their naturally occurring control volume forms to their system
(b) The Reynolds transport theorem is applicable only to nondeforming
control volumes.
(c) The Reynolds transport theorem can be applied to both steady and
unsteady flow fields.

angular acceleration a.
