## How is castor oil viscous?

They found COB’s viscosity value as 13.75 mm2. s-1 (at 40°C), sulphur value as 0.0001%, density as 0.9279 g.

## What is the value of viscosity of oil?

Crude oils – viscosity and °API

Crude Oil Kin. Viscosity [mm²/s] at Temp. API Gravity °API
Arabian Light 10.7 at 20 °C 34.2
Bonny Light 2.90 at 50 °C 35.4 35.8
Boscan 11233 at 100 °F 10.1
Brent 2.86 at 50 °C 37.9 38.2

## Which is more viscous water or castor oil?

More thick a liquid is, more slowly it will flow’. There is no relationship between viscosity and density of a fluid. But oil is more viscous than water and thus when when we put a drop of water and oil on a slant surface, water will move downwards more quickly than the oil drop.

## Which has highest viscosity?

Solids have high viscosity because they cannot flow freely. Viscosity of liquids ranges from low to high whereas gases have a low viscosity. Hence, wood being a solid has a very high viscosity.

## What increases viscosity?

Viscosity generally increases as the temperature decreases. The viscosity of a liquid is related to the ease with which the molecules can move with respect to one another. Thus the viscosity of a liquid depends on the: strength of attractive forces between molecules, which depend on their composition, size, and shape.

## What are examples of low viscosity?

Water, gasoline, and other liquids that flow freely have a low viscosity.

## What is considered a low viscosity?

Motor oil viscosity is the measure of its resistance to flow. Low-viscosity oil (e.g. 0W-20) flows faster than high-viscosity oil (e.g. 20W-50). To illustrate, think of water and honey. When poured from a container, water flows much faster than honey.

## What liquid has the same viscosity as blood?

The fluid found inside the hollow coconut chamber, the coconut water, is a surprisingly good substitute, as it’s nearly identical to human blood plasma: it’s nutritive, sterile, and contains various minerals and amino acids.

## What liquid is closest to blood?
