(Top) Cross-sectional view of the impedance pump and the fixed control volume (solid line box) used to compute the energy balance, and the moving wall (dashed line). The fixed control volume is delimited by the input and output cross sections, the axis of symmetry, and a closure line outside the pump. The input and output cross sections delimit the passive portion of the tube for which mechanical work is calculated. We use a fixed control volume that encloses the moving wall so that to consider the wall motion as a shaft work. (Bottom) Schematic of the energy contributions to the fluid for the control volume considered. Pumping work defined as shaft work minus the losses is balanced by the differential of energy between the output and input of the system.
