## Study Notes

### Flow Profile of Pressure-Driven Flow in a Microchannel

• Characteristic length (Le) is a key factor in establishing a parabolic flow profile, where Le = 0.06 × Re × l, and Re is the Reynolds number.
• In a microchannel with a characteristic length of 100 µm, a flow velocity of 0.2 m/s, and water as the fluid, Le ≈ 300 µm.
• The entrance length (Le) is necessary for establishing a parabolic flow profile.

### Hagen-Poiseuille Equation

• The Hagen-Poiseuille equation describes laminar flow in a cylindrical channel, where vx(y) = -y × (∆p / (2 × η × L)).
• The equation can be rearranged to solve for ∆p: ∆p = (8 × η × L × Q) / (4 × π × r0^4).
• The Hagen-Poiseuille equation is also applicable to rectangular and slit-type channels with some modifications.
• The fluid resistance (Rfl) is analogous to Ohm's Law, where Rfl = ∆p / Q.

### Fluid Resistance

• Fluid resistance (Rfl) in a cylindrical channel is given by: Rfl = (8 × η × L) / (π × r0^4).
• In a rectangular channel, Rfl = (12 × η × L) / (w × h^3) × (1 - Σ((n × π / 2) / h) × tanh(n × π / 2)).
• In a slit-type channel, Rfl is similar to that of a rectangular channel.

### Stokes Equation

• The Stokes equation is a simplified version of the Navier-Stokes equation for Re < 1.
• The equation is given by: ∂vx / ∂x = η × ∂^2vx / ∂y^2.
• Solving the equation involves separating variables and applying boundary conditions to find the pressure profile and velocity distribution.
