## Shear stress due to viscosity Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
shear_stress = (Dynamic viscosity*Change in Velocity)
𝜏 = (η*dv)
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Dynamic viscosity - Dynamic viscosity is the measurement of the fluid's internal resistance to flow while kinematic viscosity refers to the ratio of dynamic viscosity to density. (Measured in Poise)
Change in Velocity - Change in Velocity is the difference between the velocities of the adjacent fluid layers. (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dynamic viscosity: 10 Poise --> 1 Pascal Second (Check conversion here)
Change in Velocity: 10 Meter per Second --> 10 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
𝜏 = (η*dv) --> (1*10)
Evaluating ... ...

### Shear stress due to viscosity Formula

shear_stress = (Dynamic viscosity*Change in Velocity)
𝜏 = (η*dv)

## How are shear stress and flow velocity related?

The Newtonian fluids behave according to the law that shear stress is linearly proportional to velocity gradient or rate of shear strain. Thus for these fluids, the plot of shear stress against velocity gradient is a straight line through the origin. The slope of the line determines the viscosity.

## What is the shear stress in fluids?

Fluid shear stress refers to the stress coplanar component along with a cross-section of material. This occurs due to the component's force vector that is analogous to the cross-section.
