GALILEO NUMBER

DOI: 10.1615/AtoZ.g.galileo_number

Galileo number, Ga, is a dimensionless group representing a ratio of forces present in the flow of viscous fluids.

where g is acceleration due to gravity, ρ density of the fluid, η viscosity of the fluid, and L the appropriate linear dimension.

Note that

or Ga = Re × gravitationaiforce/viscousforce.

Galileo number is Archimedes Number with the particle density equal to that of the fluid.
