Steady, unsteady, compressible, incompressible). The motion of a fluid particle is described relative to an inertial coordinate frame. 44) dt Here, ΣF represents the sum of the external forces acting on the fluid, and mV represents the kinetic momentum in that direction. 44) expresses the equality between the time rate of change of the linear momentum of the system in the direction of V and the resultant of all forces acting on the system in the direction of V . The complete linear momentum equation is a vector equation and is dependent on a set of coordinate directions.

In an actual electrical generating plant, the actual electricity generated is always less than the reversible electricity generation rate, which is higher and which represents an ideal or maximum. The difference between the ideal and actual electricity generation rates is directly related to the irreversibility of the process. 4). Similarly, for an electrical heat pump, the actual electricity required to operate the device is always greater than the reversible electricity input rate, which is lower and represents an ideal or minimum.

Heat transfer from a solid surface to a liquid or gas is partly by conduction and convection. Whenever there is appreciable movement of the fluid, heat transfer by convection dominates, although there normally is a thin boundary layer of fluid on a surface through which heat is transferred by conduction. Convection is governed by Newton’s law of cooling, which states that heat transfer from a solid surface to a fluid is proportional to the difference between the surface and fluid temperatures and the surface area.
