Question

Use dimensional analysis to show that in a problem involving shallow water waves, both the Froude number and the Reynolds number are relevant dimensionless parameters. The wave speed c of waves on the surface of a liquid is a function of depth h, gravitational acceleration g, fluid density $ho$, and fluid viscosity $\mu$. Manipulate your $\Pi s$ to get the parameters into the following form: $\mathrm{Fr}= rac{c}{\sqrt{g h}}=f(\mathrm{Re}) \quad ext { where } \mathrm{Re}= rac{ ho c h}{\mu}$.

Given Data

The wave speed cc of waves on the surface of a liquid is a function of depth h,h, gravitational acceleration gg, fluid density ρ,\rho, and fluid viscosity μ.\mu .

We can write the relationship as

c=f(h,ρ,μ,g)c=f(h, \rho, \mu, g)
