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 __________

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 __________

The instantaneous stream-wise velocity of a turbulent flow is given as follows: $u(x,y,z,t)=\overline{u}(x,y,z)+{u}'(x,y,z,t)$ The time-average of the fluctuating velocity ${u}'(x,y,z,t)$ is $\displaystyle{\frac{u'}{2}} \\$ $\displaystyle{\frac{-\overline{u}}{2}} \\$ $\text{zero}\\$ $\displaystyle{\frac{\overline{u}}{2}}$

Consider fluid flow between two infinite horizontal plates which are parallel (the gap between them being $50 \: mm$). The top plate is sliding parallel to the stationary bottom plate at a speed of $3\: m/s$. The flow between the plates is solely due to the motion of the top plate. The force per ... _________ $N/m^2$. Viscosity of the fluid $μ = 0.44 \:kg/m-s$ and density $\rho = 888 \: kg/m^3$.
