It has previously been noted that, when the 1-D pipe model is applied to an
unsteady process, the mass balance will lead to a PDE. We generalize this
into the following statements: Whenever a variable is distributed in both
time and distance, i.e., varies with t and x (y, z), the resulting mass balance
will be a PDE.

We can summarize the results of the foregoing discussion as follows. A
mass balance can be time-dependent or time-independent, and it can be
applied over a finite entity or a differential increment of either time or
distance. It can further depend on a single space variable, or several such
variables, or none at all. Depending on which combination of factors applies
to a particular problem, this will result in an AE, or an ODE, or a PDE. These
features are summarized for the convenience of the reader in Table 2.1.
