While reading a text book on viscous flows, I came across the following interpretation of an equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

where, v is the vertical component of the free stream velocity and y is the vertical distance from the surface of a solid and Re is the reynolds number.

Can someone please help me understand what this interpretation means?

Thanks in advance
