For the control volume shown in Figure, determine the air volume flowrate leaving through

For laminar flow over a flat plate, a reasonable assumption for the velocity profile is a
polynomial in y: u = a + by + cy2. The physical boundary conditions are:
1. at y = 0; u = 0
2. at y = δ; u = U, where U is the freestream flow approaching the plate in parallel direction.
3. at y = δ; u = uy

A laboratory wind tunnel has a test section that is 305 mm square cross-section. Boundary-layer
velocity profiles are measured at two cross-sections and displacement thicknesses are evaluated
from the measured profiles. At section 1, where the freestream speed is U1 = 26 m/s, the
displacement thickness is δ* = 1.5 mm. At section 2, located downstream from section 1, δ* =
2.1 mm. Calculate the change in static pressure between sections 1 and 2. Express the result as a
fraction of the freestream dynamic pressure at section 1. Assume standard atmosphere
conditions. See Slide 35 of the lecture material for guidance
