When you drag a flat plate in the water, the water will be also moving along with the plate?

      When you drag a flat plate in the water, the water will be also moving along with the plate? What is driving it?

      Hello, 
      It is primarily due to the shear stress, which is the force tending to cause deformation of a material by slippage along a plane or planes parallel to the imposed stress. The resultant shear is of great importance in nature, being intimately related to the down slope movement of earth materials and to earthquakes. Shear stress may occur in solids or liquids; in the latter it is related to fluid viscosity.
