 Portuguese term or phrase: O esquema X foi escolhida para as experièncias, .... ...uma vez que tem melhor desempenho do que o esquema Y - I need to confirm this use of 'uma vez que' here. 2. quando a ordem do sistema de entrada é grande - does this refer simply to size, or should I use 'order' in the mathematical sense? 3. Se uma quantidade de energia entra num volume, entao o energia dentro do volume aumenta da mesama quantidade. No existem apenas fluxo entrada-saiada de energia do volume, más tambén produçao interna de energia no volume - here can I use 'volume' or should I use 'mass'? 1 and 2 refer to systems modelling and 3, to Physics.

 English translation:the scheme X was chosen for the experiments Explanation:1 - since it has better performance than scheme Y... 2 - "quando a ordem do sistema de entrada é grande" ... if it has several different dimensions then you should say "order". If it means (as I suppose) that it has a lot of data, you can translate it as "order of magnitude", or just "size 3 - without a doubt you should use "volume". It refers to the balance of the energies a) flowing through a closed surface into the enclosed volume; b) flowing through the closed surface out from the enclosed volume; and c) generated within the enclosed volume.

Scheme X was selected for the experiments

Explanation:
uma vez que=since, given that, seeing that

2. I think it's just size
3. Don't know!

Sketch X was chosen for the experiments....

Explanation:
1. "Uma vez que" (since)is correct!
2. I think it refers to "magnitude" as in order of magnitude of the number/s.
3. Se uma quantidade de energia entra num volume, entao o energia dentro do volume aumenta pela mesma quantidade.

4. I think you should use "volume" (volume) as before, or perhaps "sistema" for (system), wich may have volumes and masses.

Good luck.
