A thin plate moves between two parallel, horizontal, stationary flat surfaces at a constant velocity of $5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$. The two stationary surfaces are spaced $4 \mathrm{~cm}$ apart, and the medium between them is filled with oil whose viscosity is $0.9 \mathrm{~N} \cdot \mathrm{s} / \mathrm{m}^2$. The part of the plate immersed in oil at any given time is $2$-$\mathrm{m}$ long and $0.5$-$\mathrm{m}$ wide. If the plate moves through the mid-plane between the surfaces, find the force required to maintain this motion. What would your response be if the plate was $1 \mathrm{~cm}$ from the bottom surface $\left(h_2\right)$ and $3 \mathrm{~cm}$ from the top surface $\left(h_1\right)$ ?

Solution

VerifiedWe need to sketch this Free Body Diagram because we have visual representation of the total force will be actually smaller than in the second case.
