I have followed a derivation of the continuity equation, and it uses the divergence theorem at some point, but looking at the actual meaning of the equation, it almost seems like it is saying the same thing as the theorem. That is, local conservation. So my question is...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can the continuity equation be considered a formulation of Gauss' divergence theorem?
