when it comes to calculating the reynolds number, i realize it is defined as [tex] \frac{inertia forces}{viscous forces}=\frac{ L V}{\nu}[/tex] thus, if we have a plate of length 20 ft. with fluid flowing around it, would [itex]L=20[/itex]? if so, is this always the case? would we always have [itex]L=[/itex]the length of the object?

thanks!
