Unformatted text preview: ρ is the density of the suspending fluid and µ is the fluid viscosity. a. Show that this equation is dimensionally homogeneous b. In the limit of a very viscous liquid drop (drop viscosity goes to infinity), show that this equation reduces to the equation in Problem set 6 for a solid sphere c. Consider a 5 µ m diameter drop of olive oil in water. What is its velocity? What is its Reynolds number? 2. Consider the following equations: a. Work = Force times Distance b. Kinetic Energy = (mass x velocity squared)/2 c. Potential Energy = mass x gravity x height Show that all of these have the same dimensions...
