4.1: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Unsteady ow.

Find: Identify ve examples of an unsteady ow explain what features classify them as unsteady? SOLUTION 1. Gust of wind blowing past a pole. 2. Flow next to a rock in a natural river. 3. Flow past the lips due to inhaling and exhaling. 4. The motion of water at the center of a boiling pot. 5. At the outlet hose of a manual tire pump.

4.2: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Pouring a heavy syrup on pancakes. Find: Would the thin lm of syrup be a laminar or turbulent ow? SOLUTION The velocity is very low, the viscosity is high and the thickness of the layer is thin. These conditions favor laminar ow.

4.3: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Breathing through your mouth. Find: Sense the air ow patterns near your face. Discuss the type of ow associated with these ow processes. Why is it easier to blow out a candle by exhaling than by inhaling? SOLUTION The main point to this question is that while inhaling, the air is drawn into your mouth without any separation occurring in the ow that is approaching your mouth. Thus there is no concentrated ow; all air velocities in the vicinity of your face are relatively low. However, when exhaling as the air passes by your lips separation occurs thereby concentrating the ow of air which allows you to easily blow out a candle.

4.9: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Path of a uid particle. Find: If a light was attached to a uid particle and take a time exposure, would the image you photographed be a pathline or streakline? SOLUTION The pathline is dened as the path taken by a uid particle moving through a eld. The photograph would yield this line.

4.10: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Smoke rising from a chimney. Find: The pattern produced by smoke rising from a chimney on a windy day is analogous to a pathline or streakline? SOLUTION The streakline is dened as a line generated by a tracer injected into ow at starting point. The tracer is the smoke and the starting point is the chimney so smokes pattern is analogous to a streakline. The diusion of the smoke prevents achieving a ne line.

4.11: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Dye is injected into a ow eld and produces a streakline. Pathline starts at t = 4 s, ends at t = 10 s. Flow speed is constant. Find: Draw a pathline of the particle. SOLUTION The streakline shows that the velocity eld was originally in the horizontal direction to the right and then the ow eld changed upward to the left. The pathline starts o to the right and then continues upward to the left.

11

4.12: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: A dye streak was started, and a particle was released. For 0 t 5 s, u = 2 m/ s, v = 0. For 5 < t 10 s, u = 3 m/ s, v = 4 m/ s. Find: For t = 10 s, draw to scale the streakline, pathline of the particle, and streamlines. SOLUTION From 0<t<5, the dye in the streakline moved to the right for a distance of 10 m. At the same time a particle is released from the origin and travels 10 m to the right. Then from 5<t<10, the original line of dye is transported in whole downward to the right while more dye is released from the origin. The pathline of the particle proceeds from its location at t=5 sec downward to the right. At 10 sec, the streamlines are downward to the right.

12

4.13: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: A dye streak is produced in a ow that has a constant speed. Find: Sketch a streamline at t = 8 s. Sketch a particle pathline at t = 10 s for a particle that was released from point A at time t = 2 s. Sketch:

SOLUTION At 8 seconds (near 10 sec) the streamlines of the ow are horizontal to the right.

Streamlines at t = 8 s Initially the ow is downward to the right and then switches to the horizontal direction to the right. Thus one has the following pathline.

Particle pathline for a particle released at t = 2 s

14

4.15: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Rotating bodies. Find: Is the acceleration toward the center of rotation a centripetal or centrifugal acceleration? SOLUTION The acceleration toward the center of rotation is centripetal acceleration. "Petal" comes from Latin word"petere" which means to move toward so "centripetal" means moving toward center. "Fugal" comes from Latin "fugere" which means to ee so "centrifugal" means moving from center.

4.83: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: An airplane uses a Pitot-static tube to measure airspeed. z = 10000 ft. Find: Speed of aircraft (mph). Properties: T2 = 25 F, p = 9.8 psig, p = 0.5 psid. SOLUTION The temperature is 25 degrees F and the pressure is 9.8 psia. The pressure dierence is 0.5 psid. The pressure is 1449.8 = 1411 psfa. The temperature is 460+25=485 R. The gas constant is 1545/29=53.3 ft-lbf/lbm-R. The density is = p 1411 psfa = = 0.0546 lbm/ft3 = 0.00169 slugs/ft3 RT 53.3ft-lbf/lbm-R 485 R

. The dierential pressure is 0.5 144 = 72 psf. The pitot equation is V = 2p 1/2 2 (72psf) = 0.00169 slug/ ft3 1/2 = (8.52 104 )1/2 = 292 ft/s

4.84: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: Check equations for pitot tube velocity measurement provided by instrument company. p V = 1096.7 hv /d, d = 1.325Pa /T . Find: Validity of Pitot tube equations provided. PLAN Apply the Bernoulli equation SOLUTION Applying the Bernoulli equation to the Pitot tube, the velocity is related to the change in piezometric pressure by V2 pz = 2 3 where pz is in psf, is in slugs/ft and V is in ft/s. The piezometric pressure dierence is related to the "velocity pressure" by w (lbf/ft3 )hv (in) pz (lbf/ft ) = 12(in/ft) 62.4 hv = 12 = 5.2hv
2

The density in slugs/ft3 is given by d (lbm/ft3 ) (slug/ft ) = gc (lbm/slug) d = 32.2 = 0.03106d


3

The velocity in ft/min is obtained by multiplying the velocity in ft/s by 60. Thus r 2 5.2hv V = 60 0.03106d r hv = 1098 d This diers by less than 0.1% from the manufacturers recommendations. This could be due to the value used for gc but the dierence is probably not signicant compared to accuracy of "velocity pressure" measurement. 87

From the ideal gas law, the density is given by = p RT

where is in slugs/ft3 , p in psfa and T in o R. The gas constant for air is 1716 ftlbf/slug-o R. The pressure in psfg is given by Pa (in-Hg) 13.6 62.4 (lbf/ft3 ) p (psfg) = 12(in/ft) = 70.72Pa where 13.6 is the specic gravity of mercury. The density in lbm/ft3 is d = gc = 32.2 = 1.327 70.72Pa 1716 T

SOLUTION The pressure change from the exterior to the core of a hurricane using the model of a rotating core surrounded by a free vortex is
2 p = Vmax

The speed of 175 mph in m/s is V = 175 miles 1 hr 5280 ft 1m = 84.21 m/s hr 3600 s 1 mile 3.048 ft

The pressure dierence is p = 1.2 84.212 = 8510 Pa To convert to mbar, 1 mbar=102 Pa so the pressure dierence is 85.10 mbar and the estimated pressure at the center of the hurricane is p = 1000 85.10 p = 914 mbar This is slightly higher than the recorded pressure. The discrepancy probably lies in the simplicity of the model. Also the presence of water droplets in the air will may increase the eective density giving rise to a higher pressure dierence.

which gives 1000 2 ) = 11.3 kPa 3600 or a pressure of p(0) = 10011.3 = 88.7 kPa. In the forced vortex region the pressure varies as p = 1.2 (350 V2 2 In this region, the uid rotates as a solid body so the velocity is p(0) = p V = The equation for pressure becomes p = 88.7 + 2.26r2 /1000 for r 50 m r Vmax = 1.94r 50

The factor of 1000 is to change the pressure to kPa. A the point of highest velocity the pressure is 94.3 kPa. Bernoulli equation 1 2 1 p(50) + Vmax = p + V 2 2 2 In the free vortex region so the equation for pressure becomes

4.106: PROBLEM DEFINITION Situation: A weather balloon in a tornado modeled as a forced-free vortex. Find: Where the balloon will move. SOLUTION The uid in a tornado moves in a circular path because the pressure gradient provides the force for the centripetal acceleration. For a uid element of volume V the relationship between the centripetal acceleration and the pressure gradient is dp V2 =V r dr The density of a weather balloon would be less than the local air so the pressure gradient would be higher than the centripetal acceleration so the balloon would move toward the vortex center.
