Shear force is defined as the resistance of one layer of fluid on another layer of fluid. It represents the viscosity of the fluid. The fluid with a bigger shear force has a higher viscosity. In comparison with the solid that can resist the shear force, liquids lack this and they flow under the action of the force. The cause of the shear force is the particle in fluid flowing relative to each other.
