    Reynolds number calculation for undergraduate

    Sorry guys I have been really busy here is my answer. Assuming ISA P= 101325pa ,R= 287 J/kgk and T=288.15K Convert knots into meters per second (1) 20 knots= 10.29/ms, 40 knots =20.58m/s 60 knots= 30.87 m/s 100 knots =51.44 m/s (2) Using the formula R= ρux/μ where (ρ= P/RT) (u= velocity in...

    Reynolds number calculation for undergraduate

    Calculate the Reynolds number at a location χ= 0.3m along the chord length of an aircraft wing at each of the following velocities;u= 20,40,60,80 and 100 knots. Assume International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) conditions for pressure and temperature. Take; R =287 J/KG;μ= 18 X10 -6 Kg/m s; 1 knot =...
