We have a combination of two very long coaxial tubes with radii R and 2R. The tubes are placed vertically, the space between the tubes is filled with a heavy fluid of viscosity. The outer tube glides stationary down under the action of gravity, the inner tube is at rest. Both tube ends are open to the amosphere. Mass of the outer tube per unit length is m=M/L. Find the tube velocity U. In the present geometry stress is calculated as stress=viscosity*du/dr (z-direction) Need help to figure out how I will attack this problem, thanks!
