What is the Reynolds Number


Reynolds number is an important parameter that is used in fluid dynamics and aerodynamics and it relates the viscous forces in the flow to the inertial forces in the flow more specifically it is the ratio of inertial forces in the flow to the viscous forces in the flow. You may have seen Reynolds number quoted on airfoil charts and plots.
