continuity equation
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all.
attached is a page from the fluent theory manual.
Can one of you guys help me to understand where the last term on the left hand side of equation 1-2 comes from? As I see it it is not included in equation 1-1 - or am I wrong?

The "additional" terms stem from the definition of the divergence in polar coordinates.
