Study Notes

The Reynolds number (ℜ) is a dimensionless parameter used to determine the movement regime of a solid body inside a fluid.

For a spherical particle, the Reynolds number is calculated using the particle's radius and the fluid's density, viscosity, and speed.

Drag forces act on a particle moving inside a fluid and are parallel to the direction of the particle's velocity and opposite to it.

At low speeds (ℜ < 1), the drag force is due to the viscosity of the fluid and is proportional to the particle's speed.

At high speeds (ℜ > 1), the drag force is due to the acceleration of the fluid around the particle.

The viscosity of the fluid does not appear in the drag force equation for high speeds.

When a body is subjected to the action of a variable force that tends to 0, the movement of the body tends to reach a uniform speed called the limit speed.

The Reynolds number affects the limit speed of a sphere moving in a fluid.

A Stokes viscometer is used to measure the viscosity of a fluid by observing the terminal velocity of a sphere falling under gravity in the fluid.

For a given fluid, the sedimentation speed of spherical particles is proportional to their radius.

Centrifugation is used to measure molecular masses by measuring the sedimentation rate of particles in a centrifugal field.

The acceleration experienced by particles in a centrifugal field is proportional to the angular rotation speed of the centrifuge.

In centrifugation, the sedimentation rate of small particles can be increased significantly by the centrifugal force.
