Question: the velocity distribution for oil between two walls is given...

Question details

The velocity distribution for oil between two walls is given by u= 60y(0.15-y), where u is the velocity in ft/s and y is the distance form the lower wall in ft. The specific gravity of the oil is 0.75 and the dynamic viscosity is .00008 lbf.s/ft^2.

a) what is the density of the oil

b) what is the kinematic viscosity of the oil

c) what is the shear stress in the oil at y = .05ft
