Before the discussion of a sphere, I would like to mention how the flow across a long cylinder (i.e. a circle in 2 dimensions) progresses (and why so) with an increase in Reynolds number (Re). Consider a flow across the cylinder in the creeping flow regime ($Re\leq 1$). This means that the inertial forces are low compared to the viscous forces. Consider ...
