Review Problems 9.1. Consider a 1/32 scale model airplane which "looks" very similar to the prototype airplane being modeled. What type of similarity does this model have? Would you expect it to fly? If not describe the other types of similarity you would need for the airplane model to behave similarly to the prototype. 9.2. To achieve Reynolds number similarity for the 1/32 scale model above, keeping the velocity in the model equal to that in the prototype, what should be the kinematic viscosity of the model fluid? What is the nearest fluid you can find to that kinematic viscosity? Use a kinematic viscosity for water of 1.0 centistoke and a kinematic viscos…
