MAPUA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY School of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biotechnology P h y s i c a l   C h e m i s t r y   L a b o r a t o r y   1 Experiment 4 Measurement of Viscosity of Liquids by Capillary Flow Method Section: A31 Group No.4: Date Performed:  June   5, 2007 Members: Date Submitted:   June 12, 2007 Javier, Sandra        Ko, Denniel Gaviola, Catherine Gososo, Shelamae Olivete, Jasper Ryan Abstract In   the   experiment,   we   determined   the   viscosity   of   liquid   by   capillary  method. We used the Ostwald-Fenske Viscosimeter. The time of flow of the liquid is  measured as it passes two calibration marks. We computed for the viscosity of different   alcohols, given the time, density of the liquid, viscosity and density of pure water.

II. Methodology III. Results The different result we obtain from different liquid are: Sample Calculated Literature value Water 8.5053x10 -3 1.000x10 -3 Ethanol 1.2926x10 -3 1.02x10- 3 Ethylene glycol 7.0021x10 -3 16x10 -3 1-butanol 8.3353x10 -4 2.5x10 -3 The results we obtain are very far from the literature value of viscosity, we have a  percent error of 26.73% for ethanol, 56.24% for ethylene glycol and 63.76% for 1-
