The pressure drop, p, along a straight pipe of diameter D has been experimentally studied, and it is observed that for laminar flow of a given fluid and pipe, the pressure drop varies directly with the distance, , between pressure taps. Assume that p is a function of D and , the velocity, V, and the fluid viscosity, m. Use dimensional analysis to deduce how the pressure drop varies with pipe diameter.
