Solution Part (a) u ( y) For pipe flow Fig. 6.9 shows that the logarithmic law, Eq. (6.21), is accurate all the way to the center of the tube. From Fig. E6.3 y R r should go from the wall to the centerline as shown. At the center u u0, y R, and Eq. (6.21) becomes u0 = 5 m /s y=R y u0 u* Since we know that u0 5 m/s and R solution by trial and error or by EES r r = R = 7 cm u* where we have taken v v E6.3 | 1 Ru* ln 0.41 | e-Text Main Menu | 1.51 10 (1) 0.07 m, u* is the only unknown in Eq.
