Abstract

The law of momentum is an application of Newton’s second law of motion to fluid, and one of the fundamental laws used in combination with the equation of continuity and Bernoulli’s equation to solve flow problems. Since this law enables calculations using the states of boundary surfaces alone, it alleviates the need for states in the flow, and problems that would be considerably more troublesome using only energy equations can be easily solved.
