Mass of turbulence

    Turbulent fluid has more energy (mass) than laminar fluid?

    Are you asking whether the same fluid in some (laminar) flow has a different amount of energy (mass) before and after the onset of turbulence?

    Yes. Thanks for clarification. I would like to know if there are differences in energy (mass) of its kind between the turbulent fluid and the same fluid but laminar.
