2.16. CHAPTER 2, PROBLEM 16 125 2.16 Chapter 2, Problem 16 2.16(a): The dimensions of F , μ , ρ , D and U are [ F ]= ML T 2 , [ μ ]= M LT , [ ρ ]= M L 3 , [ D ]= L, [ U ]= L T Thus, the two terms in the Stokes-Oseen formula have the following dimensions. [ μUD ]= M LT L T L = ML T 2 ± ρ U 2 D 2 = = M L 3 L 2 T 2 L 2 = ML T 2 Since both terms have dimensions of force, the equation is dimensionally homogeneous. 2.16(b): By definition, the drag coefficient is C D = F 1 2 ρ U
