Using the Colburn Equation

  1. Feb 1, 2016 #1
    Hi, I need to use the Colburn Equation, Nu = 0.023Re0.8Pr0.333 to write a simple general expression for the relationship between convection heat transfer coefficient and velocity.

    I've been thinking about this for a while, but can't really figure out where to go beyond writing the Reynolds and Prandtl Numbers out in their expanded form.

    Thanks in advance!

    What about writing the Nusselt number in its expanded form?

    Is this for a specific fluid, or does it have to work for any fluid?
