### Shearing Stress at the Boundaries of two infinite Planes

This is a worked example on a book I am reading (Fundamentals of fluid Mechanics). He then asks "Can you explain the change in sign? [Hint: Sketch a sheared fluid particle adjacent to the top ...

### Is Viscosity = Slope?

studying fluid mechanics, I see that viscosity relates shear stress to shear rate, like a slope. However, on graphs I see that they draw a triangle, and where I would expect to see $\Delta \tau$, I ...
