Isentropic Flow

\end{figure}
In this chapter a discussion on a steady state flow through a smooth and continuous area flow rate is presented. A discussion about the flow through a converging-diverging nozzle is also part of this chapter. The isentropic flow models are important because of two main reasons: One, it provides the information about the trends and important parameters. Two, the correction factors can be introduced later to account for deviations from the ideal state.
