2 Objective To determine how fluid a liquid really is by measuring its viscosity. To determine how fluid a liquid really is by measuring its viscosity. We will simply see how fast a sphere falls through a fluid. The faster the sphere falls, the lower the viscosity. The slower the sphere falls, the higher the viscosity. We will simply see how fast a sphere falls through a fluid. The faster the sphere falls, the lower the viscosity. The slower the sphere falls, the higher the viscosity.

4 Method The measurement involves determining the velocity of the falling sphere. This is accomplished by dropping each sphere through a measured distance of fluid and measuring how long it takes to traverse the distance. Thus, you know distance and time, so you also know velocity, which is distance/time. The measurement involves determining the velocity of the falling sphere. This is accomplished by dropping each sphere through a measured distance of fluid and measuring how long it takes to traverse the distance. Thus, you know distance and time, so you also know velocity, which is distance/time. The formula for determining the viscosity is decorated with Greek letters and a squared term, but simply amounts to multiplying some numbers and then dividing by some others: The formula for determining the viscosity is decorated with Greek letters and a squared term, but simply amounts to multiplying some numbers and then dividing by some others: delta p = difference in density between the sphere and the liquid delta p = difference in density between the sphere and the liquid g = acceleration of gravity g = acceleration of gravity a = radius of sphere a = radius of sphere v = velocity = d/t = (distance sphere falls)/(time of it takes to fall) v = velocity = d/t = (distance sphere falls)/(time of it takes to fall)
