Science, Part 2: Where did it Go Wrong?

…I begin with examples of people who were at the pinnacle of some of the most prestigious scientific and medical journals and let their experiences begin the discussion. I finish my proof by offering a history lesson on the origins of these phenomena, which I believe assists in showing that the “how” of “how we got here” helps explain and buttress the conclusion that “here” is, scientifically speaking, a very bad place.

The Reynolds equation, first derived by Osborne Reynolds in 1886, is a partial differential equation which describes the flow of a thin lubricant film between two surfaces. It is derived from the Navier-Stokes equations and is one of the fundamental equations of classical lubrication theory. The principles of the theory are derived from the observation that the lubricant can be treated as isoviscous and laminar and the fluid film is of negligible curvature. The classical Reynold’s equation can be derived from the Navier-Stokes equations and the equation of continuity under assumptions of: constant viscosity, Newtonian lubricant; thin film geometry; negligible body force; and no-slip boundary conditions.
