fully developed flow liquid of dynamic viscosity 2.9x10^-3 Pa.s and relative density 0.9 in horizontal pipe of diameter 12mm, length of pipe=200mm and mean velocity is 0.5m/s(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To find the wall shear stress, i used τ=μ.du/dy = (2.9x10^-3)(0.5/0.012) = 0.121Pa

The answer is 0.968Pa, where am i going wrong?

thanks
