Unformatted text preview: laminar or turbulent? Anything is fair game for theory questions. Some possibilities: • What the Prandlt number means physically • How fast thermal and velocity boundary layers grow • What each of the terms in the energy equation (Eq. 636) stand for physically • When viscous dissipation must be included • Explain why Figures 79, 718, 722, 88, and 910 look like they do • What causes natural convection • What β is • When natural convection cannot be neglected The exam is closed book. You may have one page of notes (one side of an 8 1/2”x11” sheet), and you will be provided with a copy of the equation sheet posted on the Blackboard system. All specific equations needed are given on that sheet. However, there may be a few very general equations, such as Newton’s Law of Cooling, that you should know....
