Cimbala Total: 100 1 . (10 pts) Consider creeping flow (Stokes flow) at freestream speed U over a body of characteristic length L . As discussed in class, we define nondimensional variables */ ii x xL = , uu U = , tt U L = , and p pL U μ = . ( a ) Show that the momentum equation (ignoring gravity) reduces to () 2 ** * * Re * * * i k ki k u p u tx x x ⎡⎤ ∂∂ += + ⎢⎥ ⎣⎦ * k x where Re UL ρ = . Show all your algebra for full credit. ( b ) Consider a small particle of characteristic length L = 10 μ m (microns) in air at 20 o C. How fast can the particle move such that the left-hand side of the above equation can be considered negligible? For consistency as an upper limit, assume that any term smaller than one order of magnitude less than the other terms is negligible. 2 . (15 pts) Text problem 6.6 . Do three parts: ( a ) Generate the expressions for u r and u θ .
