#### Answer

In this situation, the term steady flow refers to the steady flow rate of the volume of the fluid along every point in the path.

#### Work Step by Step

The fluid velocity can change depending on the cross-sectional area through which it flows. If a fluid flows through a space with a smaller cross-sectional area, then the velocity is higher. If a fluid flows through a space with a larger cross-sectional area, then the velocity is lower.
These changes in velocity allow the same volume of fluid to flow at every point in the path in a given time. In this situation, the term steady flow refers to the steady flow rate of the volume of the fluid along every point in the path.
