9.47 A thin plate 1.5 m long and I .5 m wide is submerged and held stationary in a stream of water (Z : 10.C) that has a velocity of i m,/s. What is the thickness of the bound- ary layer on the plate for Re" = 500,000 (assume the boundary layer is still laminar), and at what distance down- sheam of the leading edge does this Reynolds number oc- cur? What is the shear stress on the plate on this point?
