difference between cell and face
Hi guys
i imported one 2-D mesh in fluent which has been generated by Gambit. when i get info from that the fluent said me that your mesh has 2500 cell and 5000 face.
my question is:
what is the difference between the face and cell in what fluent says?

Cells are subdomains of the computing domain via discretization, faces are the interfaces of the cells.
