The Sherwood number $(Sh_{L})$ correlation for laminar flow over a flat plate of length $L$ is given by

$$Sh_{L}=0.664\:Re_{L}^{-0.5}\:Sc^{1/3}$$

where $Re_{L}$ and $Sc$ represent Reynolds number and Schmidt number, respectively.

The correlation, expressed in the form of Chilton-Colbum $j_{D}$ factor, is

1. $j_{D}=0.664$
2. $j_{D}=0.664\:Re_{L}^{-0.5}$
3. $j_{D}=0.664\:Re_{L}$
4. $j_{D}=0.664\:Re_{L}^{-0.5}\:Sc^{2/3}$
