3“VISCOSITY IS DIFFERENT TO DENSITY” When real fluids flow they have a certain internal friction called viscosity. It exists in both liquids and gases and is essentially a frictional force between different layers of fluid as they move past one another.In liquids the viscosity is due to the cohesive forces between the molecules whilst in gases the viscosity is due to collisions between the molecules.“VISCOSITY IS DIFFERENT TO DENSITY”

6(F/A) = (v / L) = (F / A)(L / v) coefficient of viscosity (Greek letter eta).The greater the coefficient of viscosity , the greater the force required to move the plate at a velocity v.This relationship does not hold for all fluids. Viscous fluids that obey this equation are called Newtonian fluids and = constant independent of the speed of flow.

8Non-Newtonian or rheological fluids – viscosity is a function of the flow velocityExamples of non-Newtonian fluids* Blood - it contains corpuscles and other suspended particles. The corpuscles can deform and become preferentially oriented so that the viscosity decreases to maintain the flow rate.* Corn flour and water mixture.* Certain soils (more clay content) are non-Newtonian when moist to wet.

11Boundary layerWhen a fluid moves over a surface, there is a thin layer of the fluid near the surface which is nearly at rest. This thin layer is called the boundary layer.
