You really need to give context and detail but for what it's worth, you may be wanting something about how you lose volume continuity with compressible fluids whereas you can apply conservation of mass and momentum to either.
An interesting example is pumping co2 in agr reactors where the property of co2 at 100mph is interesting compared to a compressible gas at a more stately 10mph (say).
