For the following questions answer them individually

Question 11

The transition Reynolds number for flow over a flat plate is $$ 5 * 10^5.$$ What is the distance from the leading edge at which transition will occur for flow of water with a uniform velocity of 1m/s? (For water, the kinematic viscosity, $$v = 0.86 * 10^{-6} m^2/s)$$
