Classic Chemistry Experiments : viscosity


The viscosity of a liquid is another term for the thickness of a liquid. Thick treacle-like liquids are viscous; runny liquids like water are less viscous. Gases exhibit viscosity in the same way. In this experiment, the viscosity of various liquids are compared.
