Consider a laminar boundary layer over a heated flat plate. The free stream velocity is $${U_\infty }.$$ At some distance $$x$$ from the leading edge the velocity boundary layer thickness is $${\delta _v}$$ and the thermal boundary layer is $${\delta _r}.$$ If the Prandtl number is greater than $$1,$$ then
A
$${\delta _v} > {\delta _r}$$
B
$${\delta _r} > {\delta _v}$$
C
$${\delta _v} = {\delta _r} \sim \left( {{U_\infty }} \right)$$
D
$${\delta _v} = {\delta _r} \sim {x^{ - 1/2}}$$
