Question

The laminar fully-developed velocity profile between two infinite parallel plates is u(y)=U_{c L}\left(1-\frac{y^{2}}{h^{2}}\right) \text { where } h \text { is the half channel height. Find } V_{\text {avg }} \text { in terms of } U_{C L} . \text { As part of your } discussion, compare the value of Vavg found in this channel flow to the pipe flow example in class.Explain why they are different.
