water at 20°C has viscosity n=1.0*10^-3 Ns/m^2. sand grains have density 2400kg/m^3. suppose a 1.1 mm diameter sand grain is dropped into a 51m deep lake whose water is a constant 20°C. If the sand grain reaches terminal speed almost instantly (a quite good approximation), how long will it take the sand grain to settle to the bottom of the lake?
