Integral Balances in Fluid Mechanics
In the following sections, we summarize the conservation laws in an integral form essential for applying to fluid mechanics. Using the Reynolds transport theorem explained in Chapter 2, we will start with the continuity equation which will be followed by the equation of linear momentum, angular momentum, and energy. Vavra  utilized an alternative approach by directly integrating the differential balances. Both approaches are valid and lead to the same results.
