It is found experimentally that the terminal settling velocity uo of a spherical particle in a fluid is a function of the following quantities: particle diameter, d; buoyant weight of particle (weight of particle - weight of displaced fluid), W; fluid density, ρ, and fluid viscosity, µ. Obtain a relationship for uo using dimensional analysis
