This is a very significant term in atmospheric studies, leading to such phenomena as geostrophic flow. Problem 7.8 Given: That drag depends on speed, air density and frontal area Find: How drag force depend on speed Apply the Buckingham procedure c F V A n = 4 parameters d Select primary dimensions M , L , t e 2 3 2 L L M t L t ML A V F r = 3 primary dimensions f V A m = r = 3 repeat parameters g Then n m = 1 dimensionless groups will result. Setting up a dimensional equation, ( ) 2 2 3 1 t L M t ML L L M t L F A V c b a c b a = = = Summing exponents, 2 2 : 1 1 2 3 : 1 1 : = = = = + + = = + a a t c c b a L b b M Hence A V F 2 1 = h Check using F , L , t as primary dimensions [ ] 1 2 2 2 4 2 1 = = L t L L Ft F The relation between drag force F and speed V must then be 2 2 V A V F The drag is proportional to the square of the speed. Problem 7.17 (In Excel) Given: That drain time depends on fluid viscosity and density, orifice diameter, and gravity Find: Functional dependence of t on other variables Solution We will use the workbook of Example Problem 7.1, modified for the current problem The number of parameters is: n = 5 The number of primary dimensions is: r = 3 The number of repeat parameters is: m = r = 3 The number of groups is: n m = 2 Enter the dimensions ( M , L , t ) of the repeating parameters, and of up to...
