## How many types of fluids are there?

Fluids are divided into Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. A Newtonian fluid is a fluid in which the relationship between the applied shear stress and the resulting deformation rate (shear rate) is linear. So they have constant viscosities at a given temperature.
