Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 100 N/m2

Concept:

The shear stress in oil if one plate is displaced with a certain velocity is given by,

$\tau = \mu \frac{V}{{{h_o}}}$

Where μ = Coefficient of the viscosity of the oil, V = velocity of the moving plate, ho = the clearance between the plates

Calculation:

Given:

μ = 2 N s/m2 , V = 1 m/s, ho = 20 mm = 0.020 m

$\tau = \frac{{\mu}V}{{{h_o}}} = \frac{2\times1}{0.020} = 100\; N/m^2$
