Gas/fluid dynamics

  1. Sep 17, 2010 #1
    I was wondering if somebody could help me out:
    Today out of boredom, I was thinking about physics and cars and it sparked a question. I recently learnt about incompressible fluid flow and how it is possible to theoretically calculate change in velocity of a fluid flowing through a tube with different cross-sectional areas if the fluids flow rate is constant. I was wondering if there is a way to determine the flow rate of a compressible fluid and also how to convert this flow rate into pressure if it is flowing into an enclosed area of known volume. For instance, a turbine on a engine creates pressure within the intake system by forcing air into the system. So, I want to know which formulae I should use to first - find the compressible from rate and second - convert it into pressure within a container of known volume

    Thank you,
