The space between two parallel plates 5 mm apart is filled with crude oil. A force of 2 N is required to drag the upper plate at a constant velocity of 0.8 m/s. The lower plate is stationary. The area of the upper plate is 0.09 m2. Determine: (i) The dynamic viscosity, and (ii) the kinematic viscosity of the oil in stokes if the specific gravity of oil is 0.9.
