Hi Guys.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I hope some of you are able to help me out. This is NOT a homework.

I have to explain the difference between the three different rate of change (time derivatives) of a

property (such as mass, momentum, internal energy, etc) in a continuum?

1 )The partial time derivative

2) The material time derivative

3) The total time derivative

Can some of you help me out? Im very lost at this field, and I hope some of you can help me a little bit og maybe guide me through.
