1.Two large inclined parallel planes are kept 8 mm apart and are filled with oil. The parallel planes
are inclined at 30 to the horizontal. A small thin square plate of 75 mm side slides freely down
parallel and midway between the inclined planes with a constant velocity of 2.5 m/s due to its own
weight of 1.5N. Determine the viscosity of oil?
2. The velocity distribution of water in a 10cm radius pipe is given by the expression u=20 (1 (r2 /
