The WATS form a collection of weekly homework type problems in the form of out-of-class tutorial sheets.

Each WATS typically comprises of a couple of main questions of which each has around four/five linked supplementary questions. They were developed as part of an LTSN Engineering Mini-Project, funded at the University of Hertfordshire which aimed to develop a set of 'student unique' tutorial sheets to actively encourage and improve student participation within a first year first ‘fluid mechanics and thermodynamics’ module. Please see the accompanying Mini-Project Report “Improving student success and retention through greater participation and tackling student-unique tutorial sheets” for more information.

The WATS cover core Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics topics at first year undergraduate level. 11 tutorial sheets and their worked solutions are provided here for you to utilise in your teaching. The variables within each question can be altered so that each student answers the same question but will need to produce a unique solution.

There will be many instances in both this module and other modules when such a skill is required. Using table 1 sheet 160 asks to find. <br />i)What is the density of air at 20.1°C ?<br />ii)What is the dynamic viscosity of air at 6.1°C ?<br />iii)What is the kinematic viscosity of air at 11.1°C ?<br />iv)What is the density of air at 22.8°C ?<br />v)What is the dynamic viscosity of air at 10.0°C ?<br />vi)What is the kinematic viscosity of air at 7.8°C ?<br />vii)At what temperature is the density of air 1.27kg/m3 ?<br />viii)At what temperature is the dynamic viscosity of air 17.7 x 10-6 N s/m2 ?<br />Table 1. Properties of air at standard sea level atmospheric conditions.<br />Temperature (°C)Density (kg/m3)Dynamic Viscosity (10-6 N s/m2)01.29317.1101.24817.6201.20518.1301.16518.6<br />i) Table 1 suggests that the constraints for this interpolation are 0°C and 10°C. A chart of the data between these constraints is shown below.<br /> The graph shows -i) the lower value is 20°C and the corresponding density is 1.205 kg/m3.ii) the higher value is 30°C and the corresponding density is 1.165 kg/m3.Hence the Δt = (t2-t1) = 30 – 20 = 10°C & Δρ = (ρ2-ρ1) = 1.165 – 1.205 = -0.04 kg/m3.<br />Since the question asks for the density at 20.1°C we have to find how far along the relationship our data point is. i.e. -<br />(temp’ of req’d density– temp’ of lower density) / (temp’ of high – temp’ of low).<br />Which in this case is <br />(20.1 – 20) / (30 – 20) = 0.1°C /10°C = 0.01.<br />So the actual density is found via 0.01 * (-0.04) + 1.205. Where the first two parts, (the product), is the proportion of the density difference needed to get to the required value and the final part, the term added, is the value of the lower value. <br />Hence the density at 20.1 °C is 1.2046 kg/m3. <br />ii) Table 1 suggests that the constraints for this interpolation are 0°C and 10°C. A chart of the data between these constraints is shown below.<br /> The graph shows -i) the lower value is 0°C and the corresponding dynamic viscosity is 17.1 *10-6 N s /m2 ii) the higher value is 10°C and the corresponding dynamic viscosity is 17.6 *10-6 N s /m2 Hence the Δt = (t2-t1) = 10 – 0 = 10°C & Δμ = (μ2-μ1) = 17.6 – 17.1 = 0.5 *10-6N s /m2 <br />Since the question asks for the dynamic viscosity 6.1°C we have to find how far along the relationship our data point is. i.e. -<br />(temp’ of req’d viscosity– temp’ of lower viscosity) / (temp’ of high – temp’ of low).<br />Which in this case is <br />(6.1 – 0) / (10 – 0) = 6.1°C /10°C = 0.61<br />So the actual dynamic viscosity is found via 0.61 * 0.5 *10-6 + 1.71 10-6 . Where the first two parts, (the product), is the proportion of the viscosity difference needed to get to the required value and the final part, the term added, is the value of the lower value. <br />Hence the dynamic viscosity at 6.1 °C is 17.4 * 10-6 N s /m2 <br />The same procedure can be used to find the other data. <br />A point to note, however, is the fact that <br />kinematic viscosity = dynamic viscosity / density.<br />As a check the remaining answers are - <br />iii)1.42 * 10-5 m2/s<br />iv)1.194 kg/m3<br />v)17.6 *10-6 N s /m2 <br />vi)1.39 * 10-5 m2/s<br />vii)5.11°C<br />viii)12.0 °C<br />Q2. This question first requires you to undertake the integration and then substitute known or calculated values into the resulting expression.<br />You are doing this because it will be shown later in your studies that <br />. <br />i.e. to calculate work done you will have to undertake some integration hence this work is good practice.<br /> <br />In some instances it may help to draw the relationship. That way you may get a better understanding of what you are doing. It is worth noting also that you are resolving definite integrals. Hence you are undertaking the integration between fixed limits. In these cases whilst you may not have all the limit data you do have enough information to allow you to find any unknown limit data. This will be clearer as the worked solution notes proceeds. <br />Recall for all cases we are resolving <br />i) AB = constant, A1 = 208947, B1= 2.3 and A2 = 99586 ? <br />Since AB = constant and you have data for A1, B1 and A2 we should first progress to get the data for B2. <br />A1 = 208947, B1= 2.3 therefore AB = 480578 therefore for B2 = 480578/A2 = 4.83<br />This now gives enough data for the upper and lower limits of integration.<br />To undertake the integration .<br />A cannot be integrated with respect to b but the relation AB = constant is helpful. <br />Since we can write A = constant/B and substitute this into the integral. i.e. <br /> which can be written . This can now be integrated to give. applying the limits to expression gives<br /> which is the same as <br />.<br />This expression can now be evaluated to find the value of C. Remembering also that the ‘const’ term is AB gives i .e. <br /> In this case C = 356137<br />ii) AB1.20 = constant, A1 = 226573, B1= 3.3 and A2 = 419610 ? <br /> B2 = (constant/A2)1/1.2 = 1.975<br />The integration is but again A cannot be integrated wrt b. In this case<br />AB1.2 = Constant therefore which is the same as <br /> substitute this into the integral. i.e. which can be written . This can now be integrated to give. Application of the limits gives which is the same as <br />Recall also that allows us to write <br /> Which can be tidied to give<br /> This can also be written <br />Solving for our values gives <br /> = - 404388<br />iii)A = constant = 382057, B1= 2.5 and B2 = 2.7 ? <br />In this case A = constant therefore, by definition, A1 = A2 = 325270. <br /> which for the case of constant A can be written as <br />Which when inetrgated is simply Using the limits gives .<br />And substituting the values gives <br /> i.e. C = 764111.<br />iv)B = constant = 7.3, A1= 298599 and A2 = 381272 <br />For the final case B = constant. Hence looking at term to be integrated it can be seen that db = 0 , by definition. Hence here C must also equal 0<br />.<br />If you see any errors or can offer any suggestions for improvements then please <br />e-mail me at m.b.russell@herts.ac.uk<br />Credits<br />This resource was created by the University of Hertfordshire and released as an open educational resource through the Open Engineering Resources project of the HE Academy Engineering Subject Centre.
