Basic viscosity experiments compare the viscosity of different liquids, the shape of the drops of liquids of different thicknesses and the effects of temperature and sugar on viscosity. Viscosity is the resistance of fluids against motion it can be considered as the 'thickness' of a fluid, water is relatively thin compared to honey which is thick you would have to use. The aim of the experiment is to determine the viscosity of glycerine (a viscous fluid) by using guinea-and-feather apparatus and to determine the viscosity of the glycerine by using hoeppler. Students calculate the viscosity of various household fluids by measuring the amount of time have students repeat the experiment and calculate an average viscosity.
