Based on conservation laws for mass, momentum and energy, several differential equations, relevant to mechanical engineering, are derived. These are equations for a mass-spring system, the convection-diffusion equation, the wave eqution, the Laplace equation, the Poisson equation, the Helmholtz equation and the bi-harmonic equation. The equations are subdivided in hyperbolic, parabolic and elliptic equations.
