RE: Measurement of Viscosity

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks COEnginer(--nospam--at)aol.com for the clarification of "cps" as the standard
misnomer for cP in the construction chemical industry. Someone should have
told these guys that cps was already used as the abbreviation for cycles per
second.

1 centiPoise = 1 milliPascal second

Here are some centiPoise viscocities for comparison:

Hydrogen @ 20°C                  0.008
Ammonia @ 20°C                   0.009
Water Vapor @ 100°C              0.125
Air @ 18°C                       0.018
Air @ 229°C                      0.026
Neon @ 20°C                      0.031
Ether @ 20°C                     0.233
Water @ 99°C                     0.285
Methyl Alcohol @ 20°C            0.597
Water @ 20°C                     1.002
Ethyl alcohol @ 20°C              1.20
Mercury @ 20°C                    1.55
Whole Milk @ 20°C                 2.12
Benzyl Ether @ 20°C               5.33
Glycol @ 20°C                     19.9
Soy Bean Oil @ 20°C               69.3
Olive Oil  @ 20°C                 84.0
Light machine oil @ 20°C           102
Heavy machine oil @ 20°C           233
Castor oil @ 20°C                  986
Glycerin @ 20°C                  1,490
Pancake Syrup @ 20°C             2,500
Molasses @ 20°C                  6,600
Honey @ 20°C                    10,000
Chocolate Syrup @ 20°C          25,000
Ketchup @ 20°C                  50,000
Catsup @ 20°C                   50,000
Peanut Butter @ 20°C           250,000
Tar or Pitch  @ 20°C    30,000,000,000

Not sure if the peanut butter was chunky or creamy,
