2 Aerosol & Particulate Research Laboratory Newton’s Resistance Law The force is proportional to the gas pushed away and the relative velocity between the sphere and the gas (negligible viscous force) V d dt dm p g 2 4 π ρ = 2 2 8 V d C F p g D D = : ratio of inertial forces to frictional forces (Chap.2.5) For a spherical particle, L = d p , V 0.04 1.0 0.25 Q: Choose a combination of d p and V when the Newton’s Law can be applied.

09/13/11 3 Aerosol & Particulate Research Laboratory Stokes’ Law : negligible inertial force compared to viscous F Vd D p = 3 πμ p D C Re 24 = Q: How does F D change wrt V and d p in the laminar regime? Q: Under what scenario will you expect to apply Newton’s law instead of Stokes’ Law? Q: How does C D change wrt Re from 10 -3 to 10 5 ? Assumptions used in solving Navier Stokes’ equation: Incompressible flow ( ρ g = cons) Constant motion (V = const) Rigid sphere Fluid velocity on the particle surface
