To increase the flight length the drag force should be minimised. It is knownthat the drag force, FD, is dependent on the diameter, D, dimple size, d, the speed ofrotation, ω, velocity, V, air density, ρ, and air viscosity, µ. The dimensional form of thefunctional relationship can be expressed asFD = f (D, d,ω,V , ρ, µ)a) Find a non-dimensional form of this functional relationship which would be usefulfor conducting experiments. (10 marks)You may apply the Buckingham Pi Theorem using the following recipe.1. List the set of n dimensional parameters involved.2. List the set of m primary dimensions .3. List the dimensions of all dimensional parameters.4. Select m repeating variables.5. Combine the remaining n – m parameters in turn with those selected in step 4and make them into a non-dimensional group.b) Tests are conducted on a model golf ball in a wind tunnel. The model golf ball hasa diameter that is twice that of the prototype diameter. Determine the model airspeed and model speed of rotation that are required for dynamic similarity to aprototype golf ball moving at 30 m/s and rotating at 300 revolutions per minute(rpm). You may assume that the density and viscosity of the model air are the sameas those of the prototype air. (5 marks)c) At the model test conditions described in part b), the engineers observed that theminimum drag occurs when the dimple depth is 3% of the model diameter. If theprototype golf ball has a diameter of 42 mm, what is the prototype dimple depth?(2 marks)d) For the model test conditions described in parts b) and c) the minimum drag forceon the model golf ball is 2 N. What is the equivalent drag force on the prototypeball?
