1.4 A Newtonian liquid flows down an inclined plane in a thin sheet of thickness
t(Fig. 1.8). The upper surface is in contact with air, which offers almost no resistance
to the flow. Using Newtons law of viscosity, decide what the value of du/dy, y
measured normal to the inclined plane, must be at the upper surface. Would a linear
variation of u with y be expected?
Solution
Since air offers no resistance to the flow, =0.

At free surface : =0

At the plane : 0

2.127 The tube of Fig. 2.88 is filled with liquid, S = 2.40. When it
is accelerated to the right 8.05 ft/s2, draw the imaginary free

2.133 The U tube of Fig. 2.88 is rotated about a vertical axis 6 in.
to the right of A at such a speed that the pressure at A is zero
gage. What is the rotational speed?
Solution
r1 = 0.5 ft
r2 = 2.5 ft

2.134 Locate the vertical axis of rotation and the speed of rotation
of the U tube of Fig. 2.88 so that the pressure of liquid at the
midpoint of the U tube and at A are both zero.
Solution

## Due to symmetry dist.

from A to axis equals dist.
from mid-point to axis
thus r1 = 1.5 ft and r2 = 0.5 ft
Now equate PB and PO , Pc and Po

2.144 The U tbue of Fig. 2.88 is rotated about a vertical axis
through A at such a speed that the water in the tube begins to
vaporize at the closed end above A, which is at 70. What is the
angular velocity? What would happen if the angular velocity were
increased?
