Textbook Problem

Show that the Reynolds number NRis unitless by substituting units for all the quantities in its definition and cancelling.

To determine

The proof that the Reynold's number ( NR ) is unitless.

Explanation

Since we know that the Reynold's number is represented as below: -

  NR=Inertialforcesviscousforces=mass.accelerationdynamicviscosity.velocitydistance.area=ρL3.stμ( s L)L2=(ρ L 3).( 1 t)μ( 1 L)L2=(ρ L 2).( 1 t)μ=(ρ)( L t)(L)μ=(ρsL)μ

Where,

  ρ is the density of the fluid
