Reynolds Number Calculator

This program calculates the Reynolds Number by entering in flow characteristics in circular conduits or pipe flows . It calculates the Reynolds number you might expect to determine if the fluid is acting in a laminar, transitional, or turbulent phase based on the Reynolds Number result. It is a simple calculation using a basic Reynolds textbook formula .
