Unformatted text preview: 2. 40 pts A conveyor belt of width W emerges vertically with a constant velocity V from a liquid bath as shown below. As the belt rises, the liquid, which is Newtonian and incompressible ( ρ and μ ), forms a thin film of thickness δ on each side of the belt. You may assume that δ does not change with height and edge effects are negligible. By means of the shell balance technique, find a relationship for the liquid loading Γ ( i.e., mass/time-belt width) as a function of film thickness and belt velocity. Show all steps taken clearly to receive partial credit. Figure 1. A schematic illustration of a conveyor belt moving at velocity V though a liquid bath.
