Viscosity Consider two plates separated be a thin film of fluid. The lower plate is fixed and the upper is moving with a constant velocity. Investigate what is happening in the fluid in terms of flow or stresses.
Viscosity No slip boundary condition Relation between shear stress and velocity gradient Classification of fluids
Mechanisms of fluid resistance to shear stress Particle cohesion Transfer of molecular momentum Influence of temperature on viscosity
Units of viscosity Dynamic viscosity absolute viscosity viscosity Kinematic viscosity
