We shall now specialize the universally valid equations, namely Cauchy’s equation ( 2.38) and the energy equation ( 2.119) to the two most technically important cases: Newtonian fluids and inviscid fluids. The continuity equation ( 2.2) (mass balance) and the symmetry of the stress tensor ( 2.53) (angular momentum balance) remain unaffected by the choice of the constitutive relation.
