Chapter 3 Integral Relations for a Control Volume 3.1 Discuss Newton’s second law (the linear momentum relation) in these three forms: () system dd mm d dt dt ρυ ±² ³´ µ = µ = µ = ¶· ± Fa F V F V Solution: These questions are just to get the students thinking about the basic laws of mechanics. They are valid and equivalent for constant-mass systems, and we can make use of all of them in certain fluids problems, e.g. the #1 form for small elements, #2 form for rocket propulsion, but the #3 form is control-volume related and thus the most popular in this chapter. 3.2 Consider the angular-momentum relation in the form O system d d dt ± ² ³ ´ µ ´ µ · ± Mr V What does r mean in this relation? Is this relation valid in both solid and fluid mechanics? Is it related to the linear -momentum equation (Prob. 3.1)? In what manner? Solution: These questions are just to get the students thinking about angular momentum versus linear momentum. One might forget that r is the position vector from the moment-center O to the elements ρ d υ where momentum is being summed. Perhaps r O is a better notation. 3.3 For steady laminar flow through a long tube (see Prob. 1.12), the axial velocity distribution is given by u = C(R 2 r 2 ), where R is the tube outer radius and C is a constant. Integrate u (r) to find the total volume flow Q through the tube. Solution: The area element for this axisymmetric flow is dA = 2 π r dr. From Eq. (3.7), 22 0 2 .

Chapter 3 Integral Relations for a Control Volume 149 3.4 Discuss whether the following flows are steady or unsteady: (a) flow near an automobile moving at 55 m/h; (b) flow of the wind past a water tower; (c) flow in a pipe as the downstream valve is opened at a uniform rate; (d) river flow over a spillway of a dam; and (e) flow in the ocean beneath a series of uniform propagating surface waves. Solution: (a) steady (except for vortex shedding) in a frame fixed to the auto. (b) steady (except for vortex shedding) in a frame fixed to the water tower. (c) unsteady by its very nature (accelerating flow). (d) steady except for fluctuating turbulence. (e) Uniform periodic waves are steady when viewed in a frame fixed to the waves. 3.5 A theory proposed by S. I. Pai in 1953 gives the following velocity values u(r) for turbulent (high-Reynolds number) airflow in a 4-cm-diameter tube: r, cm 0 0.25 0.5 0.75 1.0 1.25 1.5 1.75 2.0 u, m/s 6.00 5.97 5.88 5.72 5.51 5.23 4.89 4.43 0.00 Comment on these data vis-a-vis laminar flow, Prof. 3.3. Estimate, as best you can, the total volume flow Q through the tube, in m 3 /s. Solution: The data can be plotted in the figure below. As seen in the figure, the flat (turbulent) velocities do not resemble the parabolic laminar- flow profile of Prob. 3.3. (The discontinuity at r = 1.75 cm is an artifact—we need more
