Question

An important dimensionless parameter in certain types of fluid flow problems is the Froude number defined as V/Vgl, where V isa velocity, g the acceleration of gravity, and I a

length. Determine the value of the Froude number for V = 10 ft/s, g = 32.2 ft/s2, and I =2 ft. Recalculate the Froude number using SI units for V, g, and I. Explain the significance of the results of these calculations.
