Compressible Flow of Gases
When the density change of fluid is small (ρ1/ρ2 < 2) and the velocity not too high (Mach number, Ma < 0.3), then the mechanical energy balance reduces to the forms developed in Chapter 2. These equations represent the flow of all liquids as well as relatively slow moving gases. This is called incompressible flow.
