Homework Help: physics

Posted by anna on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 11:16pm.

water at 20C 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 20C. 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?
