Unformatted text preview: 4) A planar channel with a height of 1cm carries a laminar flow of water with a parabolic velocity profile. The pressure drops along the channel by 0.06 Pa for every meter.(note: that’s 6 millionths of an atmosphere). What is the velocity at the center of the channel? 5) Air flows over a flat plate at 1m/s. The plate is 1m long by 5 m wide. Find the drag on the plate (include both sides). Plot the distribution of boundary layer thickness (measured to the 99% point) from leading edge to trailing edge. 6) What happens to the answers in 5) if the fluid is water instead of air?...
