Momentum diffusivity equation

  1. Nov 6, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In your own words, explain momentum diffusivity (Km) and why it is important. From the above information and your knowledge of the momentum flux, calculate Km at 16 m height.[Hint: the equation to calculate Km requires only k, z and u*].


    k=0.4
    z=depth which would be 16m in this case
    U*=friction velocity

    i'm having trouble figuring out what equation i'm to use
    thanks for the help
