6 in Fox and McDonald (optional). Do the following problems: Problem 1A: An air table is a large ﬂat surface used to support heavy objects above a thin layer of air
which allows the objects to be moved with low friction. A1r is blown through close y
spaced holes in the table surface. Consider a heavy plate 1 meter square suspended 1 tram
above the table on a cushion of air. What force is necessary to move the plate at a spee
of 1 m/s along the table? Assume p. = 2.18 x 10'5 Ns/mz. 1.18 Assuming water vapor can be treated as a perfect gas, what is its gas constant, R, if, for a pressure
of 400 kPa and a temperature of 15° C, the density is 3 kg/m3? 1.31 A spherical soap bubble has an inside radius, R, ﬁlm thickness, t < R, and surface tension 0. Find
the difference between internal and ambient pressure. Note that a bubble has two liquidair interfaces. 1.45 The viscosity of air can be approximated by a power law according to y % CTOJ
where T is absolute temperature and C is a constant. (a) Determine C by insisting that the value of n at T = 68° F matches the value given by Sutherland 's
equation. (b) Make a graph of [1. according to the power law developed in Part (a) and Sutherland's equation

The forces acting are the atmospheric pressure, p0, the internal pressure, [)0 + A p, and the
surface tension on the inner and outer surfaces of the bubble, a. Figure 1.1: Force diagram for a soap bubble. The net contribution from the atmosphere is 100 times the projection of the hemisphere
onto a vertical plane. Since the soap bubble thickness t < R, the radii of both inner and outer surfaces are m R. Noting that surface tension acts on both inner and outer surfaces,
we have 2F = (Po + 1319)sz — pow}?2 — 2 (27rR0) = 0 Simplifying, we ﬁnd
Apﬂ'R2 = 47chr Therefore, the pressure difference is 26 CHAPTER I. INTRODUCTION 1.45 Chapter 1, Problem 45 1.45(a): From Sutherland’s law, the viscosity at T = 680 F = 527.670 R is 2.27 ~ 10‘8(527.67)3/2
