4.0 RESULT 4.1 Capillary - Flow Method (The Ostwald-Fenske Viscometer): The Capillary Flow Method makes use of Hagen-Poiseuille equation for the determination of liquid velocities. We have to make calibration in order to find the A constant in the equation µ = A.ρ.t . Therefore we use water with known viscosity and density, prepare the Table 1 which includes the A constants. We take average value of A constants and use A avg. = 1.35*10 -7 when calculating glycerin-water solution viscosities. We calculate viscosities and kinematic viscosities for 40% (V/V) glycerin-water solution by using again Hagen-Poiseuille equation, Table 2 shows the values found. 7 Table 1: Datas for Calibrating A constant T water (K) ρ water (kg / m 3 ) µ water * 10 3 (Pa.s) t avg.

Unformatted text preview: The Falling Ball Method makes use of the Stokes formula for determination of liquid viscosities. We use the formula = t.( b r ).B for calculating viscosities of 20%, 40% and 60% (V/V) glycerin-water solutions. We use Ball 1 for this experiment which has properties of b = 2.392 and B = 0.3325. We prepare Table 3 by using glycerin-water solution properties at 298 K. 4.3 Rotating Shaft Viscometer (HAAKE): Rotating Shaft Viscometers are used for fast comparison tests on liquid viscosities. In this experiment, we use a viscometer with rotor 4 for finding viscosity of 40% (V/V) glycerin-water solution. We read the viscosity value as glycerin = 4.17*10-3 Pa.s 8 Table 3: Experimental results on falling ball method (V/V) % glycerin (kg / m 3 ) t avg.
