Using Stokes’ law, verify that the units for viscosity are kilograms per meter per second.
Step 1 of 4:
When a body falls through a highly viscous liquid it will experience a drag on it and results in a viscous force. The viscous force acting on the body depends on the radius of the body (considering the body in spherical shape), the speed of the body and the coefficient of the fluid viscosity or simply fluid viscosity. We are going to find out the unit of the fluid viscosity .
