Strategy

We can use the Reynolds number equation calculate N’_{R} , since all values in it are either given or can be found in tables of density and viscosity.

Solution

We first find the kinematic viscosity values:

Substituting values into the equation for N’R yields:

Discussion

This value is sufficiently high to imply a turbulent wake. Most large objects, such as airplanes and sailboats, create significant turbulence as they move. As noted before, the Bernoulli principle gives only qualitatively-correct results in such situations.

PPI can be calculated from knowing the diagonal size of the screen in inches and the resolution in pixels (width and height). This can be done in two steps

Using the Pythagorean theorem, for 3 different screen resolutions:

Using the Diagonal Resolution from the previous formula we calculate the PPI for 3 corresponding screen sizes :

**Results:**

**10.1** inch tablet screen of resolution **1024×600** : **117.5PPI****21.5** inch PC monitor of **1080p** resolution : **102.46PPI****27** inch PC monitor of **1440p** resolution : **108.78PPI**
