Which of the following statements about an oils viscosity is not true?

  1. The ability of oil to resist flow is its viscosity.

  • Viscosity is affected by temperature; hot oil flows faster than cold oiL Oil flow is important to the life of an engine.
  • In the API system of oil viscosity classification, the lighter oils receive a higher number.
  • Heavyweight oils are best suited for use in high- temperature regions. Low-weight oils work best in low temperature operations.
  • To determine

    The given statement which is not true for oil’s viscosity.

    Explanation
