Table of Contents (preliminary)

In this concise book, the author discusses proper procedures of deriving the equations of mass, momentum, energy, entropy, and mass transport based on the application of physical laws to material fluid parcels. Novel material includes the interpretation of diffusion in mass transport in terms of monochromatic parcel evolution and separation, the detailed discussion of stresses and the equation of motion for individual species in a mixture, and the examination of monochromatic and combined kinematics and dynamics. A summary of transport equations is provided in integral and differential form in an Appendix. Open and closed systems, multi-component mixtures, and elements of thermodynamics are discussed in other appendices for a self-contained and comprehensive discourse.
