Your favorite professor likes mountain climbing, so there is always a possibility that the professor may fall into a crevasse in some glacier. If that happened today, and the professor was trapped in a slowly moving glacier, you are curious to know whether the professor would reappear at the downstream drop-off of the glacier during this academic year. Assuming ice is a Newtonian fluid with the density of glycerine but a million times as viscous, you decide to build a glycerin model and use dimensional analysis and similarity to estimate when the professor would reappear. Assume the real glacier is 20 m deep and is on a slope that falls 3.0 m in a horizontal distance of 3700 m. Develop the dimensionless parameters and conditions expected to govern dynamic similarity in this problem. If the model professor reappears in the laboratory after 9.6 hours, when should you return to the end of the real glacier to provide help to your favorite professor?
