    Problem:

    A sphere 1 foot in diameter is moving at a depth of 10 feet below a water surface where the water temp is 50 degrees F. At what speed will cavitation first appear?

    Solution:

    I prefer to work in Si units and finally, I can convert the results in any other systems of units.
    The entry data are:
    D = 1 ft = 0.3048 m
    h = 10 ft = 3.048 m
    T = 50F = 10C
    Assumptions:

    1) The ambient ...
