    (a) H = Pressure/ density (m2/s2)
    V = speed of flow (m/s)
    z = height from the datum (m)
    Q = the heat added per unit time to the stream tube by conduction divided by the mass flow rate through the tube, (m2/s2)
    W = the viscous working rate on the environment of the tube divided by the ...
