In this chapter we will investigate a limiting case for the basic differential equations, namely the Navier–Stokes equations, which are the foundation of fluid mechanics. See Ref. [15], chapter 6 for details. In this limiting case, creeping flow past a sphere, viscous forces are much greater than inertia forces (i.e. the Reynolds number is much less than 1).
