Unformatted text preview: supports itself above the ground. It is known that the Reynolds number for the flow in the gap under the platform is very high. (a) Is Bernoulli's equation applicable in the gap? Explain. ANSWER (b) Derive an expression for h assuming that that the flow is incompressible and the effect of shear forces on the horizontal flow in the gap is negligible. Express h in terms of the given quantities W, b, L and the gas density . HINT HINT 2 ANSWER...
