nondimensional groups for heat transfer in a pipe...effective parameters : \[h : Mt^{3}T^{1}\]\[u : Lt^{1}\]\[k : MLt^{3}T^{1}\]\[c_p : L^2t^{2}T^{1}\]\[\mu : ML^{1}T^{1}\]\[\rho : ML^{3}\]\[d : L\]

we have a rule that No repeating parameter should have dimensions that are a power of the dimensions of another repeating parameter. why ...and how apply it here?

I seem to have forgotten this from fluids (or maybe I never really learned it). You might find this helpful: http://www.eng.wayne.edu/legacy/forms/4/Buckinghamforlect1.pdf

It says that the repeating variables that you choose cannot be manipulated into dimensionless groups. Define the above parameters for me please.

Oh. Those are the units after each parameter. Let's see. We need 3 recurring variables. Choose d, u, and \(\rho\) Those should work.

I'm working out of that document I linked and it's ringing some bells. It looks like we have 7 variables\[f(h, u, k, c_p, \mu, \rho, d) \] Between these 7 variables, we have 4 different dimensions. Mass (M), time (t), temperature (T), and length (L). n = 7; m = 4 nm gives 3 dimensionless groups. We then need to choose 3 variables (these three cannot be formed into dimensionless groups themselves. That is to say that we cannot manipulate these three independently to create a dimensionless group. For example, if we had length and diameter, we couldn't choose these are two of our three. ) Once we choose three variables, we rewrite the four dimensions in terms of the three variables we chose. Does this follow?
