Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im currently looking at turbulent gas flow in circular pipe sections by calculating the Reynolds the number. Does the Reynolds eqution hold for say flow of an ideal gas - air as it does for a real fluid say water.

This may sound like a stupid question and I supose I've got my head in a twist between the difference of a real fluid and a ideal gas, but I would like to know if I can calculate the reynolds number for a gas - in the same way I would say water through a pipe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
