Equation of continuity

Revision material

The product of the area of cross-section and the speed remains the same at all points of a tube of flow.

A1v1 = A2v2

A1, A2 = areas of cross section
v1, v2 = speed of fluid at A1 and A2

Equation of continuity expresses the law of conservation of mass in fluid dynamics.

(Chapter: Fluid mechanics)
