The Reynolds number

A team of two girls deftly managed to sail in the sea.

The Reynolds number is the ratio of inertia forces to viscous forces involved in the flow. Reynolds understood that while inertia forces were dominant in a turbulent flow, viscous forces were prevalent in a laminar one. In this way, the Reynolds number can be used to determine whether a flow is laminar or turbulent.
