L4.20 pts 1. A normal physiological function is blinking, where the eyelid spreads a tear film over the cornea of the eye (Diagram to the right). The average blink velocity, V= 180 mm sl, and the average thickness of the tear film, h= 1 mm. The flow of the tear fluid induced by the motion of the eyelid exerts a shear stress on the surface of the cornea. Using control volume analysis, model the flow of the tear fluid as the flow of fluid between two parallel solid plates induced by the motion of the top plate at a constant velocity, V. The top plate will represent the eyelid and the bottom plate will represent the surface of the cornea. You can ignore the curvature of the eye, there is no pressure drop driving the flow of the fluid, and treat the tear fluid as a Newtonian liquid. The flow is fully developed and one-dimensional. a) Draw a diagram of your control volume, choose a coordinate system, label all boundaries, and label all stresses acting on the control volume. (2 pts) b) Derive the mass balance for your control volume. What does the mass balance say about

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
