It is the intent of this book to show how these basic laws can be applied, along with pertinent knowledge of system properties, operating conditions, and suitable assumptions (e.g., judgment), to the analysis of a wide variety of practical problems involving the flow of fluids. It is the author's belief that engineers are much more versatile, valuable, and capable if they approach the problem-solving process from a basic perspective, starting from first principles to develop a solution rather than looking for a "similar" problem (that may or may not be applicable) as an example to follow. It is this philosophy along with the objective of arriving at workable solutions to practical problems upon which this work is based.
