3. Question
A geotechnical engineering company can purchase a used drilling rig for $90,000 and spend $450 per day on operating costs. The drill rig will have a 5year life with no salvage value. Alternatively, the company can lease a drill rig for $800 per day. How many days per year must the company use the leased drill rig in order to justify its purchase at an interest rate of 8% per year:

4. Question
A layer of an unknown fluid contained between two horizontal parallel plates. The separation between the plates is 2.5 mm. The bottom plate is fixed while the upper plate moves horizontally at a velocity of 0.5 m/s when a horizontal force of 0.5 N is applied to it. The effective area of the upper plate in contact with the fluid is 0.15 m^{2}. The dynamic (absolute) viscosity of the fluid (Ns/m^{2}) is most nearly:
