Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

ANSWER:

Material derivative:-

Material derivative describes the time rate of change of some physical quantities.To get the equation of motion by this, we need to solve partial differential equations by which the system is defined.It is a lagrangian way of describing the rate of change of properties of the fluid.The differentiation has to be taken with respect to time and space in this case.For an example by this we can calculate the temperature change in the fluid as the fluid flows in space and time.As it is a lagrangian...
