Newton's Law of Viscosity?


Newton's law of viscosity defines the action of some fluids under a restricted range of conditions and such fluids are referred to as Newton's fluids. The law states that when a shear stress is applied to a fluid, the velocity gradient that it yields in the direction perpendicular to the stress is proportional to the applied shear stress. The resultant velocity decreases with distance from a plane over which the shear stress is applied to.

Sir Isaac Newton was an English alchemist, physicist and astronomer born on 25th December 1642 and died on 20th March 1727. His law on viscosity is one that defines the behaviour of certain liquids under a limited level or range of conditions. The fluids or liquids can also be referred to as the Newtonian fluids.

These two laws they are similar. But Hooke's Law is a law which is used in Solid Mechanics, and Newton's Law of Viscosity is the one which is used in Fluid Dynamics.
Newton's First Law is called Law of Inertia. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. That is the
