## Shear stress developed for turbulent flow in pipes Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Shear Stress = (Shear Velocity^2)*Density of Fluid
𝜏 = (V*^2)*ρFluid
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Shear Stress - (Measured in Pascal) - Shear Stress is force tending to cause deformation of a material by slippage along a plane or planes parallel to the imposed stress.
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.
Density of Fluid - (Measured in Kilogram per Cubic Meter) - Density of Fluid is defined as the mass of fluid per unit volume of the said fluid.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Shear Velocity: 6 Meter per Second --> 6 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Density of Fluid: 1.225 Kilogram per Cubic Meter --> 1.225 Kilogram per Cubic Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
𝜏 = (V*^2)*ρFluid --> (6^2)*1.225
Evaluating ... ...
𝜏 = 44.1
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
44.1 Pascal --> No Conversion Required
44.1 Pascal <-- Shear Stress

Shear Stress = (Shear Velocity^2)*Density of Fluid
𝜏 = (V*^2)*ρFluid

## What is turbulent flow?

The turbulence or turbulent flow is fluid motion characterized by chaotic changes in pressure and flow velocity. It is in contrast to a laminar flow, which occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between those layers.

## What is the difference between laminar flow and turbulent flow?

Laminar flow or streamline flow in pipes (or tubes) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers. Turbulent flow is a flow regime characterized by chaotic property changes. This includes a rapid variation of pressure and flows velocity in space and time.
