Problem 9.46 [3] Given: Pattern of flat plates Find: Drag on separate and composite plates Solution: Basic equations: c f τ w 1 2 ρ U 2 = c f 0.730 Re x = For separate plates L 7.5 cm = W 7.5 cm = U1 m s = From Table A.8 at 20 o C ν 1.01 10 6 × m 2 s = ρ 998 kg m 3 = First determine the nature of the boundary layer Re L UL ν = Re L 7.43 10 4 × = so definitely laminar The drag (one side) is F D A τ w d = F D 0 L x τ w W d = We also have τ w c f 1 2 ρ U 2 = 1 2 ρ U 2 0.730 Re x = Hence F D 1 2 ρ U 2 W 0 L x 0.730 Ux ν d = 0.730 2 ρ U 3 2 W ν 0 L x x 1 2 d = The integral is 0 L x x 1 2 d2 L 1 2 = so F D 0.730 ρ W ν L U 3 = F D 0.0150N = This is the drag on one plate. The total drag is then
