What liquids does viscosity affect the most? I’m going to find out. I’ve always been interested in cooking and how different liquids affect each other and how they react to different things. What liquids are the most viscous and what category do these liquids tend to fall into (cooking, cleaning, etc.)? Viscosity is not normally of knowledge, so what is it? Viscosity shows how much resistance that a liquid has to flow. When liquids have been acted upon by another force, more stresses appear, which commonly cause the fluid to have a slower flow. These fluids are known as Newtonian fluids, first discovered by Sir Isaac Newton (Groiler Multimedia Encyclopedia). Viscosity is a way to show how much resistance each liquid has to flow in a motion. When forces act upon these liquids, they tend to want to slow down. This is what commonly happens. These liquids that follow the common trend are known as Newtonian fluids, which Sir Isaac Newton first discovered. Solubility is how much of a solute will dissolve into a liquid, or the solvent. If the solute dissolves completely, then the liquid will flow more quickly, meaning it isn’t as viscous. If the solute only partially dissolves, the liquid is most likely more viscous (“Oxlade 34-36”). Solubility is a measure of how much of an object will dissolve into another liquid. The liquid is known as the solvent. When the object completely dissolves, the liquid will most likely be less viscous, and flow easier. If the solute…
