Viscosity Quizzes & Trivia

Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to gradual deformation, or in general terms, the “thickness” of a fluid. Honey and water are two easy reference points when trying to conceptualize viscosity - honey has a much higher viscosity than water. Want to know more about the physics surrounding viscosity?

What is an inviscid fluid? Or a superfluid? What’s the difference between mobile and viscous liquids? What is Newton’s law of viscosity? What are some non-Newtownian fluids? Can some solids be viscous? What metric units are used to measure viscosity? How does the viscosity of a fluid affect how big a splash it makes when being poured? What is an eddy viscosity? Is glass considered viscous since it can move over time? Are gases viscous? If you’ve got the curiosity, don’t dissolve away, stay and take a few quizzes on viscosity!

Viscosity Questions & Answers

What happens to the viscosity of a liquid when its temeperature is raised?
The dynamic viscosity decreases but dynamic viscosity of gases increses
What is the definition of low-viscosity?
When a fluid quickly flows out of its container. Viscosity is a measure of resistance. The resistance in this measurement is associated with how fluids flow. It is how thick a liquid is. Viscosity is also related to how dense fluid is. Pascal-seconds
What happens to the hydrogen atoms in the oleic acid molecules of olive oil at lower temperatures?
The molecules tend to form loose conections called "hydogen bonds".
