I am simulating the mass outflow from a cylindirical tank.

My model is a 30degrees slice of this tank. I wonder if the mass flow outwards is calculated considering the whole domain or only the 30 degrees slice of the domain.

Thank you,

Calculate Slice area,Density,velocity for the outlet and check your Mass flow will give you the idea.
