Chapter 7 Flow Past Immersed Bodies
P7.1
An ideal gas, at 20C and 1 atm, flows at 12 m/s past a thin flat plate. At a
position 60 cm downstream of the leading edge, the boundary layer thickness is 5 mm.
Which of the 13 gases in Table A.4 is this likely to

Chapter 5 Dimensional Analysis
and Similarity
5.1 For axial flow through a circular tube, the Reynolds number for transition to turbulence is
approximately 2300 [see Eq. (6.2)], based upon the diameter and average velocity. If d = 5 cm and
the fluid is ke

Chapter 6 Viscous Flow in Ducts
P6.1
An engineer claims that flow of SAE 30W oil, at 20C, through a 5-cm-diameter smooth
pipe at 1 million N/h, is laminar. Do you agree? A million newtons is a lot, so this sounds like
an awfully high flow rate.
Solution:

Chapter 9 Compressible Flow
9.1 An ideal gas flows adiabatically through a duct. At section 1, p1 = 140 kPa, T1 =
260C, and V1 = 75 m/s. Farther downstream, p2 = 30 kPa and T2 = 207C. Calculate V2
in m/s and s2 s1 in J/(kgK) if the gas is (a) air, k = 1.4

Objective
The purpose of this experiment is to evaluate the friction factor for a compressible
pipe flow. Also, the idealizations of adiabatic and isothermal flow will be examined.
Nomenclature and Assumptions
A: Area ()
M: Mach number
P: Pressure (Pa)

Objective: The purpose of this experiment is to observe the expansion of air discharging from a high pressure
reservoir tank into the surroundings through a convergent nozzle. During this experiment the thrust produced by
the air jet will also be measured
