I am trying to work out a reynolds number for an impinging jet using air. If I have:

μ=1.8*10-5 kg/ms
ρ=1.2 kg/m3
Velocity = 90m/s
Nozzle Diameter=15mm

is it Re = ρ u dh / μ

Which is (1.2 kg/m3*90m/s*0.015m)/1.8*10-5 kg/ms

Thanks

M

That depends entirely on the application. That would likely be the most commonly used formulation but there could be others.

If that's the data you're given then that's probably the formula you have to use. If you're unsure then check that your final answer is dimensionless i.e. has no units.
