The tangential force exerted by the shearing stresses on an object submerged in a fluid is known as
  • a)
    pressure drag
  • b)
    surface drag
  • c)
    drag
  • d)
    lift
Correct answer is option 'B'. Can you explain this answer?

Civil Engineering (CE) Question

-The tangential force exerted by the shearing stresses on an object submerged in a fluid is known as surface drag.
-Resistance derived from friction between the surface of a body and the fluid through which it is moving. The fluid particles adjacent to the body slow down, causing turbulent flow. 
-Surface drag is generally more pronounced for bodies moving in air than for those moving in water.
