Title: Pipe Flow

Description: One can see the different velocity profiles as a function of Reynolds number by marking a line of fluid and then letting the water drain. The Laminar (low Re) flow has a nice parabolic velocity trajectory whereas the turbulent case has very small boundary layers, implying that the flow is still developing, and the bulk of the flow is going at the same speed.
