The flow of fluid through a pipe is laminar when
An oil of kinematic viscosity 0.5 stokes flows through a pipe of 4 cm diameter. The flow is critical at a velocity of about
In flow through a pipe, the transition from laminar to turbulent flow does not depend on
Transition depends on Reynolds number Reynolds number depends on velocity, diameter, dynamic/kinematic viscosity
The equations of motion for a viscous fluid are known as
In the Navier-Stokes equations, the forces considered are
Navier-Stoke’s equation represents the conservation of
Navier-stokes equations represent the conservation of momentum, are equation of motion for viscous fluid and consider combination of gravity, pressure and viscous forces.
For laminar flow between two fixed parallel plates, the flow velocity
The maximum velocity of a one-dimensional incompressible flow between two fixed parallel plates is 5 m/s. The mean velocity (in m/s) of the flow is
The shear stress between two fixed parallel plates with a laminar flow between them
Velocity for flow through a pipe, measured at the center is found to be 3 m/s. If the Reynolds number is around 1000, what is the average flow velocity in the pipe?
