Question

A concentric cylinder viscometer may be formed by rotating the inner member of a pair of closely fitting cylinders. The annular gap is small so that a linear velocity profile will exist in the liquid sample. Consider a viscometer with an inner cylinder diameter of 4 in, a height of 8 in, and a clearance gap width of 0.001 in, filled with castor oil at 90 oF. Determine the torque (in lbf×ft) require to turn the inner cylinder at 400 rpm. The dynamic viscosity of the caster oil is 0.0079 lbf×s /ft2.
