# Mass-flow rate

Not what you're looking for?

Consider a flow for which the velocity vector is:

u=(U/L)(xi-2yj+zk)

Compute the mass-flow rate across a plane of area A that is perpendicular to the x axis and lies at x=3L. The fluid density is d.

I know that the mass-flow rate, M, is calculated by:

M=Double integration [d(u*n)]dA

I am having trouble setting up the integral though. I think that dA becomes dy dz but I'm not for sure what the limits will be for those.
