We present here an order of magnitude calculation for the coefficients of viscosity with the assumption that the drift velocity introduces asymmetry both in the single-particle distribution functionf1 and the correlation functionP(1, 2). These asymmetric parts have been estimated considering the self-relaxation of the system when the cause of drift velocity is suddenly removed. Using these, the kinetic part of the coefficient of electron viscosity has been calculated and the result fairly agrees with similar studies by others. The potential part of shear viscosity coefficient is found to be zero while both parts of the coefficient of bulk viscosity are non-zero.
