Adam Romman Viscosity Measurements of Polymers and Gases 7/01/2007 Data Analysis 1) Q test for Z739 calibration: |(suspect) – (closest)| / [(highest) – (lowest)] Q = |263.25 – 258.2| / |263.25 – 257.47| = 0.87 > 0.74 This point may be discarded. Italicized points were discarded because of the Q test. Boxed points were excluded because the viscometer because there was a clog in the viscometer for these points.

2) There is no need for interpolation since the water bath temperature is exactly 26.0°C.
