The viscous force between two layers of area A having velocity gradient (dv/dx) is given by: F =
A (dv/dx), where is called coefficient of viscosity
In SI system, is measured I Poiseiulle (Pl) 1Pl = 1Nsm2 = 1 decapoise. In egs system, the unit
of is g/cm/sec and is called POISE
When a spherical body is allowed to fall through viscous medium, its velocity increases, till the sum
of viscous drag and upthrust becomes equal to the weight of the body. After that the body moves
with a constant velocity called terminal velocity.
According to STOKEs Law, the viscous drag on a spherical body moving in a fluid is given by: F =
6r v, where r is the radius and v is the velocity of the body.
The terminal velocity is given by: v T =

2 r 2 ( ) g

liquids)
