Title: Relationship between viscosity and sugar concentration in aqueous sugar solution using the Stokes’ Law and Newton’s First Law of Motion
Author: Kim, Evelyn
Issue Date: 2010-06-01
Abstract: In this experiment, the relationship between viscosity and sugar concentration in aqueous sugar solution was determined by calculating viscosity with Stokes’ Law and Newton’s First Law of Motion. In 9 different concentrations of sugar solution, the viscosities of the 9 different solutions were measured by acquiring the average velocity of the marble to reach certain height within the solution. From the experiment, the result shows that the viscosity and concentration of sugar solution has two possible relationships: linear (η=1.19 • concentration+0.94) or exponential relationship (η = 0.95℮concentration-0.006).
