In the movie, Wind, with Jennifer Grey and Mathew Modine, they are building a sailboat to compete against the Australians in the America's Cup. There are a lot of physics shared by planes and boats. Jennifer Grey in her spare time, has built a cool little toy airplane out of gossamer and balsa wood that almost magically floats on the air, and when one expert asks how she did it, she said something about having to "get the Reynold's Numbers right." That sounded appropriately "techy" and worked well in creating her character, but I never knew what Reynold's Numbers were. Now I know. Thanks.
