Viscosity is a property of a liquid and is defined as the resistance of a liquid to flow. The purpose of this experiment is to determine the viscosity with varying temperature of the liquids. A redwood viscometer is used to measure the flow of eight different liquids including engine oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, glycerol, thermic fluid (Hytherm), coconut oil, water and ghee. Kinematic viscosity is determined by redwood viscometer with help of its constants. The viscosity of each liquid found at temperature 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75 and 80 oC. The liquid samples taken such a way in that some are highly sticky liquids, some are low sticky.
