What is meant by streamlining the flow and laminar flow? Is the streamlined flow of a fluid through a tube laminar? Explain
Streamlining the flow refers to reducing the resistance and turbulence of a fluid (liquid or gas) as it moves through a conduit, such as a pipe or a channel.
Laminar flow is a type of flow characterized by smooth, predictable movement of fluid layers in parallel paths, without turbulence or mixing.
The streamlined flow of a fluid through a tube can be laminar if the conditions are right, i.e., the fluid has a low velocity, the tube is straight and smooth, and the fluid’s viscosity is high enough to prevent turbulence.
