Abstract:

The goal of this trial was to decide the interim of the Reynold's number where move through a

glorified straight, smooth pipe with consistent weight progressed from laminar stream to fierce

stream. This examination was completed using a model like Reynold's own structure. Color was

infused into a flood of water coursing through a get pipe and out into a store to show if there

were any unsettling influences inside the stream. Water leaving the base valve was gathered in a

one liter graduated chamber for a time of around thirty seconds and the going with volume and

specific time was recorded. The Reynold's number was determined for three distinctive stream

rates around the change which was noted by the development of the color in the stream and

whether it was a straight or blustery and separated line. The accumulation of numerous volume

and time datum took into consideration a normal volume stream rate that was increasingly

illustrative of the real volume stream rate than one lot of information could have delivered,

prompting progressively exact outcomes. The acknowledged Reynold's number of 2300 was

inside the test interim of determined Reynold's numbers for the progress from laminar to violent

stream.

1. Introduction:

The first person to mention that there may be in fact two types of viscous flows was an

engineer named G.H.L Lagen in 1839. He deduced an equation that described the difference in

pressure, taking into account the entrance effects and some unknown constant.

𝐿𝑄

∆𝑝 = (𝑐𝑜𝑛𝑠𝑡) + 𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑛𝑐𝑒 𝑒𝑓𝑓𝑒𝑐𝑡

𝑅4

He observed that after increasing the volume flow rate in a pipe past a certain point, his equation

no longer held true. What he did not know is that the constant in his equation related to the viscosity

of the liquid.

In 1883, an engineering professor by the name of Osborne Reynolds discovered that the constant

in Lagen’s equation was in fact:

𝜌𝑉𝑑

𝑅𝑒 =

𝜇

A flow can be Laminar, Turbulent or Transitional in nature. This becomes a very important

classification of flows and is brought out vividly by the experiment conducted by Osborne

Reynolds (1842 - 1912). Into a flow through a glass tube. He injected a dye to observe the nature

of flow. When the speeds were small the flow seemed to follow a straight-line path (with a slight

blurring due to dye diffusion). As the flow speed was increased the dye fluctuates and one observes

intermittent bursts. As the flow speed is further increased the dye is blurred and seems to fill the

entire pipe.

The significance of the Reynolds number is that it relates given values (density, velocity,

length/diameter, and viscosity) to the type of flow that the liquid will experience. The larger the

Reynolds number, the more turbulent the flow.

2. Theory:

2.1 Reynold’s numbers:

Reynolds number is the ratio of a fluid's inertial force to its viscous force. Inertial force involves force

due to the momentum of the mass of flowing fluid. Think of it as a measure of how difficult it would be

to change the velocity of a flowing fluid. Viscous forces deal with the friction of a flowing fluid. Think of

pouring a cup of tea versus pouring cooking oil. The cooking oil has a higher viscosity because it's

more resistant to flow

Reynold’s number = internal forces / viscous forces

The flow of a fluid when each particle of the fluid follows a smooth path, paths which never

interfere with one another. One result of laminar flow is that the velocity of the fluid is constant at

any point in the fluid.

Irregular flow that is characterized by tiny whirlpool regions. The velocity of this fluid is

definitely not constant at every point.

Derivation

(1)

Inertial force F = ma (2)

Viscous force = τ

(3)

The negative sign shows that the velocity profile is decreasing.

(4)

u = velocity

µ = viscosity

4. Experiment and Procedure:

1. First of all the device is associated on the highest point of the water powered seat.

2. The water is permitted to fill the endeavor cylinder and expel all the air molecule from

the cylinder.

3. Adjust the stream rate with the assistance of volumetric stream rate technique and remain

fluctuate in the premise everywhere throughout the test.

4. Set the intensity of the siphon.

5. Adjust the spill out of the Rota meter.

6. We can compute the real stream rate 10 litters of water from the recipe

𝑉

𝑄=

𝑡

7. Adjust stream of water through hole meter with the assistance of given spill out of

controller valve and evacuate all the air which is caught between the funnels.

8. Measure the weight change between two segments in the opening meter utilizing stream

of fluid.

9. Repeat the entire trial for the following perusing. The qualities are placed in given table

6. Specimen calculation

1 dm3 = 0.001mm

Area is calculating as

𝐴 = 0.000153

As

𝜌 = 1000

𝜇 = 1.00038 × 10−6

7. Discussion:

Through this experiment, we determined that the Reynold’s number is truly dependent on

velocity. While we were not able to fully determine its dependency on the other factors such as

density of the water, diameter of the pipe, or viscosity, we observed that the Reynold’s number

generally increased with increasing velocity. This makes sense because the Reynold’s number

maintains a linear relationship with velocity in the equation. Also, the faster the liquid is moving,

the higher tendency it will have to develop turbulence.
