Problem: A viscous fluid with a known density (rho = 1300 kg/m^3) flows past a flat plate such that the boundary layer thickness at a distance 1.3 m from the leading edge is 12 mm. Determine the boundary layer thickenss, shear stress and friction coefficient at a distance of 0.2 m from the leading edge if the free stream velocity is 1.5 m/s.
Given: xk = 1.3 m, deltak = 12 mm, rho = 1300 kg/m^3, U = 1.5 m/s
Find: delta, tauw, and Cf at 0.2 m
Pretty simple, huh? Until next time...keep studying!
