CONSERVATION OF MASS
The Law of Conservation of Mass states that mass is indestructible.
If steady flow exists in a channel and the principle of conservation of
mass is applied to the system, there exists a continuity of flow,
defined as: "The mean velocities at all cross sections having equal areas
are then equal, and if the areas are not equal, the velocities are
inversely proportional to the areas of the respective cross sections.“ This
is expressed in the Continuity Equation:
𝑄 = 𝑣𝐴
Q = the volumetric flow rate
A = the cross sectional area of flow
V = the mean velocity

from one form or another. The flow of energy is described by work.
Work is performed whenever a force acts through a distance. By its
