ME 3332 Spring 2011 HW #1 A &B Assigned- Wednesday, January 19 th , 2011 Due- Monday, January 24 th , 2011 @ 5:30pm Source Material: Class Notes and 1.1 – 1.7 of “Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics” th or 6 th edition). Please Show All Work and Follow the Format given in the Syllabus for Type B Problems Type A. Section 1.2 of “Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics” by Munson, Young, th or 6 th edition). 1. A car travels along the highway at 65 miles per hour. How fast is the car moving in nanometers per second? How fast in hectometers per minute? 2. Later in the course we will study the forces on objects in a moving fluid (similarly a moving object in a fluid at rest). The drag force, D f , on an object in a fluid moving at velocity U is given by the equation: A U C D D f 2 2 1 ρ = where is the fluid density, A is the projected frontal area of the object, and C D is called the drag coefficient (depends on the shape of the material, the fluid density, velocity, and kinematic viscosity). In either SI, BG, or EE
