Measure the centipoise, or cP, of a fluid using a viscometer. Centipoise is a unit of viscosity in the centimeter gram second system; in the International System of Units the pascal second replaces centipoise. More » Science Chemistry

Dropping a marble or ball bearing through a liquid is a simple method for measuring viscosity, while an Ostwald Viscometer is more complex and more accurate. The ball bearing method involves more rigorous calculations th... More »

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 ... More »

There is no relationship between the viscosity and density of a fluid. While viscosity is the thickness or thinness of a fluid, density refers to the space between its particles. However, both properties are affected by ... More »

At 68 degrees Fahrenheit, the viscosity of ethylene glycol is 16.9 centipoise, nearly 17 times that of water. However, if it is heated to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, its viscosity drops to 5.2 centipoise. Viscosity is the me... More »

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. More »

Measure a baseball glove by extending a flexible tape measure from the top of the index finger to the bottom of the heel while making sure the tape measure touches the glove at all times. Both field and first base gloves... More » Sports & Active Lifestyle Classic Sports Baseball
