Thus for a binary mixture of liquids A and B,the fluidity of a mixture can be approximated asFx,F,+xF(6)where xA and xB are the mole fractions of each pure liquid in the solution. Another approachfor expressing the viscosity of a mixture is the following, proposed by Kendall(7)The Ostwald viscometer is a simple device for comparing the flow rates of two liquids ofknown densities. If the viscosity of one is known, the other can be calculated. Read page320 of Garland et al for the theory of how an Ostwald viscosimeter works and page 326 forhow to use it accurately.To calculate coefficient of viscosity using an Ostwald viscosimeter the following equation isused:(8)pBt

Step 1

Viscosity is defined as the liquid’s resistance to flow. It is another type of bulk property.

Step 2

Assuming the coefficient of viscosity for methanol and water as 0.000594 Pa.s and 0.00089 Pa.s.

The validity of the equation represented as follows:

Step 3

Now to check the validity of equation represented abo...
