Where T (tau) is the shear stress, u is the fluid velocity, y is the normal distance from the stationary plate, and M is the molecular viscosity. , dynes/cm ) exerted across the shearing sur­ face at some point in a fluid. It acts on the fluid parallel to the surface of the fluid body. Shear stress is generated at the boundary of two moving fluids, and it is a function of the extent to which a slower moving mass retards a faster moving one. Thus, as a faster moving layer moves over a slower moving layer, the shear stress is the force that produces a change in velocity height (dy), the velocity gradient (Fig.
