What are source terms?

  1. Oct 28, 2011 #1
    I'm relatively knew to fluid dynamics. I'm self teaching myself. Could someone explain what it means to say a function or vector is a source term? Are there any significant mathematical properties/uniqueness's? I'm working with vector matrices, so if you could explain in this context that would be great. Thanks.

    Go to http://ask.com and type the search question, e.g., in fluid dynamics, what is a source term?

    Good luck. :smile:
