Question details

3 Consider the constant-property, steady laminar flow illustrated in Fi 2P-3. A fluid is between a large horizontal stationary bottom plate large top plate that moves parallel to the bottom plate at a cons velocity U in response to a constant external force per unit area applied to the upper plate. Because of the infinite extent, it can be assumed that no quantity varies in the x and z directions. tant AY Figure 2P-3 (a) Apply the conservation of mass principle to the dotted control volume (after first making all assumptions) to derive the form of the continuity equation appropriate to this physical situation. (b) Apply Newtons second law for control volumes to the dotted control volume (after first making all assumptions) to derive the forms of the x- and y-direction equations of motion in terms of pressures and stresses appropriate to this physical situation. Show all nonzero surface and body forces acting on the control volume; note that since v -0, it is reasonable to assume Tyyp is the only stress acting on the control volume top and bottom other than yx- c) Relate Ty, to du/dy in the equations of motion of part b by applying Newtons viscosity law.

Also Derive the energy equation in rectangular coordinates for the situation of the above Problem by first making all assumptions and then applying the conservation of energy principle to the indicated control volume. Detailed answer with all the steps and subparts please. You can expect great feedback. Question is related to convective heat transfer
