Conservation of energy • • For engineers it is more important to understand the effect of flowing fluid on some material objects ( engine. Conservation of mass 2. . can be readily considered as control volumes MAE 308 .Control Volume • • Instead of following the fluid we will control everything that is coming in and out We will formulate 3 basic conservation principles for c.
