ENGR 225 Spring 2014 Homework #7 due by recitation week of 3/17 1. What is the no-slip condition. What causes it? 2. In regions far from the entrance, fluid flow through a circular pipe is one-dimensional, ad the velocity profile for laminar flow is given by u(r) = u max (1- r 2 /R 2 ), where R is the radius of the pipe, r is the radial distance from the center of the pipe, and u max is the maximum flow velocity, which occurs at the center. Obtain (a) a relation for the drag force applied by the fluid on a section of the pipe of length L and (b) the value of the drag force for water flow at 20°C with R = 0.08 , L = 30 m, u max = 3 m/s, and µ = 0.0010 kg/m-s. Answer: a) 4πµLu max b) 1.13 N 3. A 1.2 mm diameter tube is inserted into an unknown liquid whose density is 960 kg/m 3 , and it is observed that the liquid rises 5 mm in the tube, making a contact angle of 15°. Determine the surface tension of the liquid. Answer: 0.0146 N/m. 4. Consider a heavy car submerged in water in a lake with a flat bottom. The driver’s side door of the car is 1.1 m high and 0.9 m wide, and the top edge of the door is 10 m below the water

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
