Knowing µ for air at 20°C from Table 1.4 (page 26), estimate its viscosity at 500°C by (a) the power law
and (b) the Sutherland law. Also, make an estimate from (c) Figure 1.7 on page 27. Compare with the
accepted value of µ  3.58 × 10

Problem P1.48
A thin plate is separated from two fixed plates by very viscous liquids µ
1
and µ
2
, respectively, as shown
in the figure below. The spacing of the plates, h
1
and h
2
are unequal, as shown. The contact area is A
between the center plate and each fluid. (a) Assuming a linear velocity distribution in each fluid, derive
the force F required to pull the plate a velocity V. (b) Is there a necessary relation between the two
viscosities, µ
1
and µ

Example 2.5 (page 80) calculated the force on plate AB and its line of action, using the moment-of-
inertia approach. Some teachers say that it is more instructive to calculate these by direct integration of
the pressure forces. Using the figures below, (a) find an expression for the pressure variationp(;) along
the plate; (b) integrate this expression to find the total force F; (c) integrate the moments about point A
to fmd the position of the center of pressure.

Problem P2.7 {6 ed}
The deepest known point in the ocean is 11,304 meters in the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. At
this depth the specific weight of seawater is approximately 10,520 N/m³ (at the surface,   10,050
N/m³). Estimate the absolute pressure at this depth, in atm.
