Question:-
Assertion (A): Nature of the fluid flow in pipe does not depend entirely on average velocity but is actually a function of the Reynolds number
Reason (R) : Reynolds number depends not only on average velocity but also on the diameter of the pipe and kinematic viscosity of the fluid
Option (A)
Both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A
Option (B)
Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A
Option(C)
A is true but R is false
Option(D)
A is false but R is true
Correct Option:
(A)
Question Solution:
Reynolds’s number decides the fluid flow is laminar or turbulent, i.e. Nature of fluid flow
Re = (rVD/m)
