# Total force of the fluid on the sphere in a creeping flow around a sphere

## Input(s)

R: Radius $(\mathrm{m})$

$\rho$: Density $\left(\mathrm{kg} / \mathrm{m}^{3}\right)$

$\boldsymbol{\mu}$: Viscosity $(\mathrm{kg} /(\mathrm{ms}))$

g: Gravitational Acceleration $\left(\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}\right)$

vs: Apparent Velocity $(\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s})$

## Output(s)

F: Total Force of Fluid (N)

## Formula(s)

$F=\frac{4}{3} * \pi * R^{3} * \rho * g+6 * \pi * \mu * R * v s$## Reference(s)
