NaOH is the chemical formula for sodium hydroxide. It is also called caustic soda or lye. At room temperature, pure sodium hydroxide is a white, odorless solid. It is an extremely caustic metallic base and an alkaline corrosive.


At standard temperature and pressure, the density of NaOH, or sodium hydroxide, is 2.13 grams per cubic centimeter. The STP standard assumes a temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit and 0.987 standard atmosphere.


Viscosity is a term used to describe the measure of a fluids resistance to flow. The internal friction of a fluid in motion and it's unofficial "thickness" can also be described in terms of the viscosity of a particular fluid.


The pH of NaOH is 14. NaOH, or sodium hydroxide, is a highly caustic substance and is an alkali, or base. Sodium hydroxide is a white solid at room temperature.


The viscosity of water is 1.0020 millipascal seconds at 20°C. The viscosity of water, and other substances, can change with a difference in temperature. Water has low viscosity compared to other fluids.


Sodium hydroxide, chemically known as NaOH, is a strong base. A strong base is defined as a chemical compound that can remove a proton (H+) or in other words, deprotonate a molecule of a weak acid in an acid-base reaction. Strong bases completely dissociate in water.


The ratio of NaOH to water will need to be about 0.001 moles of NaOH to 1 liter of water. Since the molar mass of NaOH is 39.9971 grams per mole, this is equivalent to 0.0399971 grams of NaOH, or about 0.04 grams.


Viscose is a fabric made from cellulose or wood pulp. Also called rayon in the United States, viscose is made using a process involving caustic soda and a spinneret.


The difference between high and low viscosity is the thickness of the material being measured. Low viscosity refers to substances that are thin, such as water, while high viscosity substances are thick. An example of a high viscosity liquid is syrup.


The molecular weight of NaOH, or sodium hydroxide, is 39.9971 g/mol. This means that one mole of this substance containing a number of constituent particles equal to Avogadro's constant, weighs 39.9971 grams.
