1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The drag force F on a car depends upon its speed V, length L, the density ρ of the air and the dynamic viscosity of the air µ . Show that this statement regarding five physical quantities can be re-written in terms of two independent non-dimensional groups. Preferably using the method of sequential elimination of dimensions, find two appropriate non-dimensional groups I have got my two non- dimensional groups as (Dρ/µ^2) and (ρVL/µ) FOR THE SECOND PART (BELOW) I AM UNSURE ON HOW TO ACHIEVE THE AIRSPEED IN THE TUNNEL A car being developed for the Le Mans 24 Hour Endurance Race is to have a top speed of 230 mph assuming an air density of 1.2kg/m^3 and dynamic viscosity of 1.9 x 10^-5 Pa.s. Tests carried out on a 1/4-scale model car in a pressurized and cooled wind tunnel in which the air density is 5kg/m^3 and the dynamic viscosity is 1.1 x 10^-5 Pa.s give a drag force of 469 N. What must be the airspeed in the wind tunnel for dynamic similarity (at top speed for the full-size car)? Calculate the drag force on the full size car and the power needed to run at top speed. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution for part a i have the two non dimensional groups shown above and for part (b) I have worked out the drag force using the equation Df= (ρm/ρf)* (μf/μm)^2 * Dm (f= full scale, m= model) It would be of great help if someone could help me understand how to calculate the windspeed and power needed?
