In a simple concentric shaft-bearing arrangement, the lubricant flows in the $$2$$ $$mm$$ gap between the shaft and the bearing. The flow may be assumed to be a plane Couette flow with zero pressure gradient. The diameter of the shaft is $$100$$ $$mm$$ and its tangential speed is $$10$$ $$m/s.$$ The dynamic viscosity of the lubricant is $$0.1$$ $$kg/m.s.$$ The frictional resisting force (in newton) per $$100$$ $$mm$$ length of the bearing is ______________.
