Stokes' Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Stokes' law, abbreviated as St, is the force that is put on a small sphere, slowing down the movement through a viscous fluid.

Stokes' Law formula

\(\large{ F =  6 \; \pi \; r \; n \; v   }\)

Where:

\(\large{ F }\) = force

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ r }\) = radius of sphere

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity

\(\large{ n }\) = viscosity
