Archimedes Number

The significant formula for Archimedes number, analyzes fluidization as it relayes to a system of density differences (not to be confused with pi, the Archimedes constant):

  , where:

Ar = Archimedes Number

g = Gravity (m/s2)

L = Characteristic Length (m)

 = Fluid Density (kg/m3)

 = Solid Density (kg/m3)

 = Dynamic Viscosity (Pa*s)
