The mass of a substance contained in a given volume divided by the volume. For a incompressible fluid, the density is considered to be constant throughout the flow field. However, for a compressible fluid, the density can vary from one location to the next in the flow field. The speed of sound in a fluid depends on the ratio of
pressure changes to density changes in the fluid.
