Viscosity Unit

Viscosity Unit: Viscosity – As already explained, a fluid is a material which will continue to deform with the application of shear stress. However, different fluids deform at different rates when the same shear stress is applied. Viscosity is the property of a fluid which determines the amount of resistance to a shearing stress. A […]

Classification of Fluids

Classification of Fluids: Classification of Fluids areĀ as follows. Ideal fluids and Real or Practical fluids. Newtonian fluids and Non-Newtonian fluids. (1) Ideal Fluids: Ideal fluids are having following properties. It is incompressible. It has zero viscosity. Shear force is zero when the fluid is in motion i.e. No resistance is offered to the motion of […]
