The opposite of steady is unsteady, or transient. The term uniform, however, implies no change with location over a specified region. ). A large number of engineering devices operate for long periods of time under the same conditions, and they are classified as steady-flow devices. Processes involving such devices can be represented reasonably well by a somewhat idealized process, called the steady-flow process, which can be defined as a process during which a fluid flows through a control volume steadily (Fig.

Control surface Mass YES CONTROL VOLUME Energy YES FIGURE 2–4 Both mass and energy can cross the boundaries of a control volume. ■ CLOSED AND OPEN SYSTEMS A system is defined as a quantity of matter or a region in space chosen for study. The mass or region outside the system is called the surroundings.

People with heart and lung problems, especially those with asthma, are most affected by air pollutants. This becomes apparent when the air pollution levels in their neighborhoods rise to high levels. Ozone and Smog SUN O3 NOx HC SMOG FIGURE 2–27 Ground-level ozone, which is the primary component of smog, forms when HC and NOx react in the presence of sunlight in hot calm days. If you live in a metropolitan area such as Los Angeles, you are probably familiar with urban smog—the dark yellow or brown haze that builds up in a large stagnant air mass and hangs over populated areas on calm hot summer days.
