# 6.1.5: Momentum For Steady State and Uniform Flow

[ "article:topic" ]

The momentum equation can be simplified for the steady state condition as it was shown in example 6.3. The unsteady term (where the time derivative) is zero.

$\label{mom:eq:govSTSF} \sum\pmb{F}_{ext} + \int_{c.v.} \pmb{g} \,\rho\, dV - \int_{c.v.}\pmb{P}\,dA + \int_{c.v.} \boldsymbol{\tau}\,dA = \int_{c.v.} \rho\, \pmb{U} U_{rn} dA \tag{15}$
