Name:
Closed book and notes. No calculators. The relevant tables from Appdx. B in BSL are attached. You are allowed
one formula sheet (front and back). Start each problem on a new page.
DO NOT use the back of a page.
Write
clearly your assumptions and any parameter definitions. Show your work to get maximum credit. It is helpful to
the grader (and to you) if you box intermediate and final answers.

For a Newtonian fluid the equation of motion reduces to the NavierStokes
equation, which is given below in vectortensor notation.
Which terms are eliminated in the above equation for (a) creeping flow and (b) inertial
dominated flow. Justify the approximations.
