- Two methods are employed in hydrodynamics, called the
**Eulerian**and Lagrangian, although both are due originally to Leonhard Euler. - In the
**Eulerian**method the attention is fixed on a particular point of space, and the change is observed there of pressure, density and velocity, which takes place during the motion; but in the Lagrangian method we follow up a particle of fluid and observe how it changes. - The Lagrangian method being employed rarely, we shall confine ourselves to the
**Eulerian**treatment. - The
**Eulerian**Form of the Equations of Motion. - In the
**Eulerian**notation u, v, w denote the components of the velocity q parallel to the coordinate axes at any point (x, y, z) at the time t; u, v, w are functions of x, y, z, t, the independent variables; and d is used here to denote partial differentiation with respect to any one of these four independent variables, all capable of varying one at a time.
