Velocity Gradient

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

velocity gradientVelocity gradient ( \(\nu\) (Greek symbol nu) ) is how the velocity of a fluid changes between parallel planes or different points within the fluid.

Velocity Gradient Formula

\(\large{ \nu = \frac { v } { l } \large }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \nu }\)   (Greek symbol nu) = velocity gradient

\(\large{ l }\) = distance

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity
