## QUESTION 1 (P01,C02, C2.C3)

a) Figure 1 illustrate the buildup to the steady-state and laminar velocity profile for a fluid contained between two plates. Explain briefly the concept of Newton's Law of viscosity by showing the related equation which contributes to transmit the momentum.

Figure 1 Laminar velocity profile (3 marks) b) Figure 2 shows a coating experiment involving a flat photographic film that is being pulled up from a processing bath by rollers with a steady velocity U at an angle G to the horizontal. As the film leaves the bath, it entrains some liquid, and in this particular experiment it has reached the stage where: (a) the velocity of the liquid in contact with the film is vx = U at y = 0, (b) the thickness of the liquid is constant at a value 5, and (c) there is no net flow of liquid (as much is being pulled up by the film as is falling back by gravity). Clearly, if the film were to retain a permanent coating, a net upwards flow of liquid would be needed.

i) Derive the liquid velocity distribution of the fluid, vx as a function of y using equation of motion. Equations of motions are given in Appendix 1. State your assumptions. (15 marks) ii) Sketch the velocity profile vx by labeling all important features. (2 marks)

## QUESTION 2 (P01.C03, C3.C5, C5)

a) A very long rod (circular cross section) initially at 150C is suddenly immersed in a fluid at temperature 30C. The radius of the rod is R. i) Derive the radial temperature profile in the rod as a function r. (10 marks) ii) Justify your assumptions. (6 marks) b) The Schmidt number for a gas at constant pressure usually remains fairly constant over a large temperature range, while the Lewis and Prandtl number changes markedly. Discuss your justification. (4 marks)

QUESTION 3 (P01,C04,C2,C3)

a) The general species A diffusion equation in terms of molar fluxes expressed in Cartesian coordinates is as follows:

b) An air supply is transported through a porous iron pipe submerged in water as shown in Figure 3. The air, specifically the oxygen in the air, diffuses through the pipe wall to the outer surface of the pipe with diffusivity 2>. Develop a following model for the steady-state diffusion of the oxygen through the pipe wall, providing an expression for the oxygen concentration as a function of radial position with oxygen concentration in the pipe wall is Cf| at r = n and Ch at r = r2.
