However, looking at the expressions for them,

Ec=(U^2)/(Cp*(Tw-Tinf))

Br=(μ*U^2)/(k*(Tw-Tinf))

So What does (μ*U^2) (numerator for Brinkmann number) signify?

**Also, for the denominator in the Ec, Cp*(Tw-T) seems to be maximum enthalpy stored in the fluid.**However, in Br we have (k*(Tw-Tinf)) in the denominator...which is basically the same amount of energy being conducted in...So what is the difference?
