Page 12 - The minimum pressure is at 0.5c. 3 — The drag coefficient is near its minimum value over a range of lift coefficients of 0.3 above and below the design lift coefficient. 4 — The design lift coefficient is 0.4. 21 — The maximum thickness is 0.21c.

Page 1 - Kn < 0.1. The Knudsen number can be expressed in terms of other important dimensionless parameters in fluid mechanics. The Reynolds number is the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces Re=^— (4.4) where va is a characteristic velocity and v is the kinematic viscosity of the fluid.
