A scale-invariant model of statistical mechanics is described leading to invariant Boltzmann equation and the corresponding invariant Enskog equation of change. A modified form of Cauchy stress tensor for fluid is presented such that in the limit of vanishing intermolecular spacing all tangential forces vanish in accordance with perceptions of Cauchy and Poisson. The invariant forms of mass, thermal energy, linear momentum, and angular momentum conservation equations derived from invariant Enskog equation of change are described. Also, some exact solution of the conservation equations for the problems of normal shock, flow over a flat plate, and flow within a spherical droplet located at the stagnation point of opposed cylindrically-symmetric gaseous jets are presented.
