Stokes law can be used to determine the viscosity of a fluid by dropping a spherical object
Stokes law can be used to determine the viscosity of a fluid by dropping a spherical object in it and measuring the terminal velocity of the object in that fluid. This can be done by plotting the distance traveled against time and observing when the curve becomes linear. During such an experiment a 3-mm-diameter glass ball (r = 2500 kg/m3) is dropped into a fluid whose density is 875 kg/m3, and the terminal velocity is measured to be 0.12 m/s. Disregarding the wall effects, determine the viscosity of the fluid.
