(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For the following situations of steady flow, determine whether the flow is laminar or

turbulent based on Reynolds number: water at 10oC flowing at an average velocity of

2 m/s in a 100-mm pipe, (Viscosity of water at 10oC: 1.31 cP, density: 1000 kg/m3)

2. Relevant equations

Re=ρVd/μ=vL/viscosity

3. The attempt at a solution

so Re=(1000x2x0.1)/(1.31x10^-3)=152671.8

therefore its turbulent flow

Am I correct in this method?
