Question: consider the incompressible laminar flow over a flat plate of...

Question details

Consider the incompressible laminar flow over a flat plate of length 3 m at standard sea level conditions. The flow velocity is 110 m/s. Along each streamline within the boundary layer, there is a loss of total pressure due to frictional dissipation. Assume the velocity profile across the boundary layer is given by y/δ = (V2/V1)^2 where V1 is the velocity at the edge of the boundary layer, equal to the free-stream velocity. Given δ = 0.003275434 m (Note: The velocity profile given here is only an approximation in order to have an analytic expression to use in this problem. Do not use it for any other application.) Calculate the loss of total pressure (per unit span) integrated across the boundary layer at the downstream edge of the plate.
