At low Reynold's number, the power (P) required for agitating a fluid in a stirred tank becomes independent of inertial forces. In this limit, indicate which of the following relations is satisfied:
Po = ρ/ρN3D5: Power number
Re = ρ ND2/μ: Reynold's number
N is the impeller rotational speed and D is the impeller diameter.

A. Po ∝ Re-1.0

B. Po ∝ Re0.0

C. Po ∝ Re0.5

D. Po ∝ Re1.0
