Unformatted text preview: Here, U is the free stream u velocity, L is the plate length in the x direction, δ is the boundary layer thickness in the y direction. (b) Given the scaling arguments in our lecture (that is, each term is the product of a quantity that gives the size of the term, and a nondimensional term of order unity), show how the boundary layer grows with L. Stated another way, when nondimensionalized, and normalized, each whole additive term is O(1). Using this, find the functional FORM of δ . That is, write δ as a function of the other paramters....
