Unformatted text preview: the ambient pressure. See the last ±gure in F5 notes. 7. Why does the curve in the p/p plot look like it does? (2 students) The pressure is plotted along the drawn streamline. The pressure is always high near the leading edge stagnation point, and also somewhat high near the trailing edge. The pressure is lowest just above the top of a lifting airfoils. 8. Why does c d when Re ± ? (1 student) Note that Re ² 1 /µ . So a larger Re implies a smaller µ , which in turn implies smaller shear stress and less drag. 9. Pace is fast, and it’s tough to get an intuitive feel for ﬂuids. (3 students) Yes, ﬂuid dynamics is challenging, partly because its not just a simple extension of particle dynamics. See me or the TA’s if you need help catching up. 10. No mud (24 students)...
