Homework Help: Help Please! Fluid Mechanics, Viscosity

  1. May 13, 2012 #1
    The following question is on viscosity, and I feel like I am looking too much into the problem, but I am having a very hard time getting started!

    The total space between stationary boundaries is 1cm. Ethylene glycol is placed on the left side, and propylene glycol is placed on the right side. When the infinite plate that separates the liquids is pulled upward, it finds an equilibrium position. Determine the lateral location of the plate if it has a thickness of 1mm.

    Viscosity of propylene glycol: 88 (lbf s/ft^2) x 10^5
    Viscosity of ethylene glycol: 109
