The microscopic (differential) formulations to be presented here include conservation equations and jump conditions. The former apply within a particular phase, and the latter are valid at the interface that separates two phases. The phase equations for a particular phase should be the same as those for a single-phase system. Most textbooks (e.g., White, 1991; Incropera and DeWitt, 2001; Bejan, 2004; Kays et al., 2004) obtain the governing equations for a single-phase system by performing mass, momentum, and energy balances for a microscopic control volume. We will obtain the conservation equations by using the integral equations for a finite control volume that includes only one phase. Jump conditions at the interface will be obtained by applying the conservation laws at the interfaces.

## Continuity Equation

$\frac{{D\rho }}{{Dt}} + \rho \nabla \cdot {{\mathbf{V}}_{rel}} = 0$

See Main Article Continuity equation

## Momentum Equation

$\rho \frac{{D{{\mathbf{V}}_{rel}}}}{{Dt}} = \sum\limits_{i = 1}^N {{\rho _i}{{\mathbf{X}}_i}} - \nabla p + \nabla \cdot (\mu \nabla {{\mathbf{V}}_{rel}})$

See Main Article Momentum equation

## Energy Equation

$\rho {c_p}\frac{{DT}}{{Dt}} = \nabla \cdot (k\nabla T) + T\beta \frac{{Dp}}{{Dt}} + q''' + \nabla {{\mathbf{V}}_{rel}}:{{\mathbf{\tau }}_{rel}} \qquad \qquad(3)$

See Main Article Energy equation

## Entropy Equation

See Main Article Entropy

## Conservation of mass species equation
