Calculate the Reynolds number N′R for a ball with a 7.40-cm diameter thrown at 40.0 m/s.


We can use the Reynolds number equation calculate N’R , since all values in it are either given or can be found in tables of density and viscosity.


We first find the kinematic viscosity values:

Kinematic Viscosity

Substituting values into the equation for N’R yields:

Reynolds number


This value is sufficiently high to imply a turbulent wake. Most large objects, such as airplanes and sailboats, create significant turbulence as they move. As noted before, the Bernoulli principle gives only qualitatively-correct results in such situations.
