We investigate exact results of isotropic turbulence in three-dimensions when the pressure gradient is negligible. We derive exact two-point correlation functions of density in three-dimensions and show that the density-density correlator behaves as
|x1x2|−α3, where α3=2+[(√{33})/6]. It is shown that, in three-dimensions, the energy spectrum E(k) is the inertial range scales with exponent 2−[(√{33})/12] ≅ 1.5212. We also discuss the time scale for which our exact results are valid for strong 3D-turbulence in the presence of the pressure. We confirm our predictions by using the recent results of numerical calculations and experiment.
