D
MCQ No - 5

The flow through a circular pipe is laminar. Now, the fluid through the pipe is replaced with a more viscous fluid and passed through the pipe again with the same velocity. What can we say about the nature of this flow?

(A) The flow will become turbulent
(B) The flow will be a transition flow
(C) The flow will remain laminar
(D) The Reynolds number of the earlier flow is required to answer this question
