# Flow Classifications - Lesson 3

Some flows can be compressed, while others cannot. Some flows are rotational and others are not. Some show a steady flow behavior, while others do not. In this lesson, we will learn to classify flows based on certain properties and behaviors exhibited by them. This flow classification will help us identify and categorize fluid flows.
