Common fluid mechanics equations - Bernoulli, conservation of energy, conservation of mass, pressure, Navier-Stokes, ideal gas law, Euler
equations, Laplace equations, Darcy-Weisbach Equation and more
The Bernoulli Equation
- The Bernoulli Equation - A statement of the conservation of
energy in a form useful for solving problems involving fluids. For a non-viscous, incompressible fluid in steady flow, the sum of pressure,
potential and kinetic energies per unit volume is constant at any point.
- In fluid dynamics, the Euler equations govern the motion of a
compressible, inviscid fluid. They correspond to the Navier-Stokes equations with zero viscosity, although they are usually written in the form
shown here because this emphasizes the fact that they directly represent conservation of mass, momentum, and energy.
Ideal Gas Law
- The Ideal Gas Law - For a perfect or ideal gas the change in
density is directly related to the change in temperature and pressure as expressed in the Ideal Gas Law.
- Properties of Gas Mixtures - Special care must be taken
for gas mixtures when using the ideal gas law, calculating the mass, the individual gas constant or the density.
- The Individual and Universal Gas Constant -
The Individual and Universal Gas Constant is common in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
- The motion of a non-turbulent, Newtonian fluid is governed by the Navier-Stokes equations. The equation can be used to model
turbulent flow, where the fluid parameters are interpreted as time-averaged values.
Mechanical Energy Equation
- The Mechanical Energy Equation - The mechanical
energy equation in Terms of Energy per Unit Mass, in Terms of Energy per Unit Volume and in Terms of Energy per Unit Weight involves
