A Newtonian fluid having a specific gravity of 0.92 ( [email protected] C = 1000 kg/m3) and a kinematic viscosity of 4 × 10-4 m2/s flows past a fixed surface. The velocity profile near the surface is shown
in Fig. 1. Determine the (a) magnitude and (b) direction of the shearing stress developed on the
plate when = 1 m/s, = 2 mm. (Hint:
2. The Panel
in the slanted side of a water tank (
= 9790 N/m3) is a rectangle of width 2m,
as in Fig. 2. Find (a) the water force on the panel and (b) its line of action (center of pressure).
(Hint: sin 2 Figure 1 Figure 2 3. In Fig. 3 the flowing fluid is water at 20°C. Neglect losses. If = 170 kPa and the manometer
fluid is a liquid which is heavier than water, estimate (a) and (b) the flow rate in m3/hr.
