\subsubsection{Cumulus cloud}
\wherefrom{Non-examinable. From Tennekes \& Lumley \cite{tennekesetal1972} P1.1}
A cumulus cloud (one of those “fluffy” summer clouds) has roughly the size of a sphere of diameter $D = \SI{50}{\meter}$. To a good approximation, it features isotropic, homogeneous, fully-developed turbulence. The largest-scale air currents in the cloud reach a maximum velocity $V = \SI{3}{\metre\per\second}$.

\item What is approximately the dissipation power, per unit mass of air and for the entire cloud?

\subsubsection{Reactor tank}
\wherefrom{Non-examinable. \cczero \oc}
A tank used to store chemical reactants has roughly the size of a cube of side length $L = \SI{2}{\metre}$. The tank is filled with a water-like liquid and vigorously stirred with a large agitator propeller for a prolonged amount of time. The propeller induces a maximum fluid velocity of \SI{1,5}{\metre\per\second}.
