Mean Velocity given Shear Velocity Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Mean velocity = Centreline velocity-(3.75*Shear Velocity)
V = umax-(3.75*V*)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Mean velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Mean velocity is defined as the average velocity of a fluid at a point and over an arbitrary time T.
Centreline velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Centreline velocity is defined as the maximum velocity in the pipe, so it is, most of the time, larger than the average velocity.
Shear Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Shear velocity, also called friction velocity, is a form by which a shear stress may be re-written in units of velocity.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Centreline velocity: 5 Meter per Second --> 5 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Shear Velocity: 6 Meter per Second --> 6 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
V = umax-(3.75*V*) --> 5-(3.75*6)
Evaluating ... ...
V = -17.5
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-17.5 Meter per Second --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
-17.5 Meter per Second <-- Mean velocity
(Calculation completed in 00.012 seconds)

FAQ

What is Mean Velocity given Shear Velocity?
The Mean Velocity given Shear Velocity formula is defined as the velocity of a fluid at a fixed point, over a somewhat arbitrary time interval counted from some fixed time and is represented as V = umax-(3.75*V*) or Mean velocity = Centreline velocity-(3.75*Shear Velocity). Centreline velocity is defined as the maximum velocity in the pipe, so it is, most of the time, larger than the average velocity & Shear velocity, also called friction velocity, is a form by which a shear stress may be re-written in units of velocity.
How to calculate Mean Velocity given Shear Velocity?
