Quiz – ungraded (answers will be on bSpace) (1) For creeping flow past a sphere shown below, write down the r and θ components of v = - Uez In spherical coordinates, ____ ≤ θ ≤ ____ and ____ ≤ φ ≤ ____ (2) Given the following differential equation for h : ∂ ∂ + ∂∂ + ∂ ∂ = h t ση xh3 3h x3 U h x 0 where σ , η , and U are constants, we would need ____ boundary conditions in the ____-direction and ____ ________ condition for ________ in order to solve. Assuming R and H to be the characteristic length scales for x and h , respectively, and that the second and third terms in the above differential equation are of the same order of magnitude, show that H must scale as RCa 1/3 , where Ca = ηU / σ is the capillary number. (3) Fill in the blanks or circle the correct items regarding the falling-film geometry shown below. ∂ ∂ p x
