Now-a-days computational fluid mechanics has become very vital area in which obtained governing equations are differential equations. Sometimes, these governing equations cannot be easily solved by existing analytical methods. Due to this reason, we use various numerical techniques to find out approximate solution for such problems. Among these techniques, finite volume method is also being used for solving these governing equations here we are describing comparative study of Finite volume method and finite difference method.
