Homework #8 Due Thursday, June 3 rd , 2010 1. In class, we showed that the thermal energy equation for a flat plate for Pr ~ < 1 reduces to ) v x "# " ) x + Pr 1/ 2 V y " 2 # " Y 2 = " 2 # " Y 2 , where ) v x = v x /U , V y = v y /(U δ M /L), Θ = ( T T 0 )/ ( T T 0 ), ) x = x/L, and Y = y/ δ T . a) Explain the conditions allowing us to simplify the equation above to "# " ) x = " 2 # " Y 2 , which satisfies boundary conditions
