Prof. Cappelli Spring 2007-08 ME 70 Problems due Wednesday April 16, 2008 Hydrostatics (Pressure-Depth Relation) Solve: Problem 3.14 (Fox, McDonald and Pritchard) Problem 3.25 (Fox, McDonald and Pritchard) Buoyancy Solve: Problem 3.83 (Fox, McDonald and Pritchard) Forces on Submerged Surfaces Solve: Problem 3.43 ( Fox, McDonald, and Pritchard) Rigid Body Motion with Linear Acceleration Solve: Problem 3.100 (Fox, McDonald and Pritchard) Boundary Layer Study and Matlab Polynomial and Fitting Exercise Air at standard condition flows past a flat surface. Measurements are made at a position downstream of the leading edge of the velocity component parallel to the surface (u) and its variation with position away from the surface (y).

(b) Plot the velocity distribution, and determine the shear stress at the wall. Hints: While there is no “one way” to do this in MATLAB, try fitting the discrete data with the POLYFIT command. I prefer to plot functions using the POLYVAL command, which constructs a set of discrete data from a function at specified intervals, and then, the PLOT command to plot these data. There are other ways too. Explore!...
