Two flat, rectangular plates with a lateral dimension w*l lie parallel, one above the other, a distance h apart. The gap between them is filled with molten polymer. One plate is fixed; the other moves parallel to it in the direction of the dimension l at velocity v, causing the fluid to be sheared. Show that the fluid is displaced past the stationary plate with a volume flow rate Q given by:
Q =vhw/2
