In summary, you can apply Euler's Equation and continuity equation to compressed air flow from a tank or orifice as long as you have an appropriate equation of state, such as the ideal gas law. However, please note that the assumptions of dissipation-free flow and adiabatic and inviscid systems may not hold true in your specific case, leading to some error in the calculations.

Thank you sir for your fast reply,

As i have engine and as power source is compressed air and process assumed is adiabatic then how i can apply here in my system.

Euler's equation is a fundamental equation in fluid dynamics that describes the motion of a fluid. It is commonly used to analyze the behavior of compressed air, as it allows for the calculation of important parameters such as pressure, velocity, and density.

Yes, Euler's equation can be applied to all types of compressed air systems, including compressors, pipelines, and pneumatic tools. However, the assumptions made in the equation may not hold true for very complex systems.

The continuity equation is another important equation in fluid dynamics that states that the mass of fluid entering a system must equal the mass of fluid leaving the system. This equation is particularly relevant in compressed air systems, as it helps determine the flow rate and pressure drop in pipes and other components.

While Euler's equation and the continuity equation are powerful tools for analyzing compressed air systems, they do have some limitations. These equations assume that the fluid is incompressible and the flow is steady and inviscid, which may not always be the case in real-world systems.

By applying these equations, you can determine the optimal design and operation of your compressed air system. This includes selecting the right compressor size, minimizing pressure drops, and ensuring efficient flow through pipes and other components. Additionally, these equations can help identify potential issues and improve the overall performance of your system.
