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.
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.
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.
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.
Viscosity describes a fluid's resistance to flow. The thicker the fluid, the slower it flows and the higher its viscosity. The viscosity of a lubricant such as oil affects how it reduces friction and transfers heat.
