A Dolphin

Work Time

A Dolphin

The dolphin has a cruising speed of 15 meters per second, an amplitude of 3 meters, and a flapping frequency of 1.5 beats per second.

  • Predict whether the dolphin’s Strouhal number will fall within the range you calculated for the birds and bats.
  • Calculate the Strouhal number for the dolphin and compare it to your prediction.
