By timing the fall of a sphere through different known grades of oil, your students can construct a time vs. viscosity graph. This graph is then used to determine the viscosity of an unknown oil. The five tubes of oil are sealed with two spheres, one steel and the other a polymer with a low density and low coefficient of friction. The instruction manual relates values to SAE Grades of motor oil used in automobiles. This lab stores in a minimum amount of space and requires very little teacher preparation time from year to year.

Great for practice in recording data, graphing, controlling the variables, etc. Includes instruction manual and set of five tubes, ≈29 cm (11.25 in.) Stopwatch required.
