A fluid (Prandtl number, $P_r=1$) at $500\:K$ flows over a flat plate of $1.5\:m$ length, maintained at $300\: K$. The velocity of the fluid is $10 \: m/s$. Assuming kinematic viscosity,$v=30\times 10^{-6}$ $m^2/s$, the thermal boundary layer thickness (in $mm$) at $0.5 \:m$ from the leading edge is __________

Oil (kinematic viscosity, $v_{\text{oil}}=1.0\times 10^{-5} \:m^2/s$) flows through a pipe of $0.5$ $m$ diameter with a velocity of $10$ $m/s$. Water (kinematic viscosity, $v_w=0.89\times 10^{-6}\:m^2/s$) is flowing through a model pipe of diameter $20 \:mm$. For satisfying the dynamic similarity, the velocity of water (in $m/s$) is __________
