A compressor (Figure 6.1) is a device that compresses a gas to a pressure higher than the atmospheric pressure.This rises the temperature of the gas, its specific mass ρ (absolute density), its volumetric flow QV decreases, while its mass flow QM stays constant (equality of mass per units of time through the compressor: what comes in must come out).
