## Things to File Away

Divergence Theorem
If the integral of some differential entity
over an arbitrary sample volume is zero,
then the differential entity itself is zero.

Conservation Laws
Conservation of mass:
Increase of mass = mass generated + mass flux

Conservation of momentum
Increase of momentum = momentum generated +
momentum flux
Conservation of energy
Increase of energy = energy generated + energy flux
If more mass goes in
than comes out, mass
accumulates (unless it
is destroyed).
If we take in more
calories than we use,
we get fat.

## Conservation Laws: Mathematically

All three conservation laws can be expressed mathematically
as follows:

d d
dV v ndA
CS
dt
dt CV
Production of the
entity (e.g. mass,
momentum,
energy)

Increase of
entity per unit
volume

## Flux of entity per unit

volume out of the surface

## (n is the outward normal)

is some entity. It could be mass, energy or momentum.

## is some property per unit volume. It could be density, or

specific energy, or momentum per unit volume.

If you are on a skateboard, traveling west
and someone throws a bowling ball to you
from the south, what happens to your
westward velocity component?

## Reynolds Transport Theorem:

Mass
If we are concerned with the entity mass, then the
property is mass per unit volume, i.e. density.

## Mass can be produced by:

1. Nuclear reactions.
2. Considering a certain species (e.g. production of ATP).

## Reynolds Transport Theorem:

Momentum
If we are concerned with the entity mass, then the
property is mass per unit volume, i.e. density.

## Mass Conservation in an Alveolus

dm d
dV v ndA
CS
dt dt CV
Density remains constant, but mass increases
because the control volume (the alveolus)
increases in size. Thus, the limits of the
integration change with time.
Term 1: There is no production of mass.
Control Volume (CV)

## Term 2: Density is constant, but the control

volume is growing in time, so this term is positive.

Control Surface CS

## Term 3: Flow of air is into the alveolus at the inlet,

so this term is negative and cancels Term 2.

Density can be destroyed
through energy influx, but
the transport theorem still
holds.

Term 1 is zero. No mass is created inside the control volume.
Term 2 is zero. The decrease in density is cancelled by the
increase in volume.
Term 3 is zero. There is no flux of mass through the walls.

## Air Compressed into a Rigid Vessel

dm d

CS

Density increases so mass increases while the
control volume (vessel) remains constant.
Term 1: There is no production of mass in the
container.
Term 2: There is an increase in the total mass
of air in the container.

## Term 3: There is flow of air into the alveolus at

the inlet.

The left hand term is production of mass. The first term on the right is an
increase in density within the cube, and the second term on the right is the
outward flux of fluid. If the control volume is stationary, then:

Conservation of mass reduces to:

If density is constant then v 0.

## When is density constant?

Louisiana Tech

Constant Density
Generally density is taken as constant when
the Mach number Mv/c is much less than 1
(where c is the speed of sound).
For biological and chemical applications,
this condition is almost always true.
For design of aircraft, changes in density
cannot necessarily be ignored.
In acoustics (but nobody pays any attention
when I say this).

## Momentum has three components. Therefore, this is really 3 equations.

Momentum is produced by external forces. Therefore, the first term
represents the forces on the control volume.

## If the system is in steady state (i.e. there is no change with

time of the energy within the control volume), then the
integral is zero. Thus, the loss of energy through the control
surface must be balanced by a production of energy.
This example is a bit misleading because production may
be considered to be a flux of energy through the control
surface. However, production could also be caused by, for
example, a chemical reaction.

Louisiana Tech

## -2.4 + -1.92 = -4.32 (>4.08),

so there is more energy
coming in than going out.
Therefore, the box must
destroy the energy (e.g. by
doing work).
