Viscosity: The thickness of a coating as related to its ability to flow as a liquid.
Ekmanspiral : A logarithmic spiral (when projected on a horizontal plane) formed by the heads of current velocity vectors at increasing depths. The current vectors become progressively smaller with depth. . . . View Full Definition
Amphibolite: Amphibolite is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that forms through recrystallization under conditions of high viscosity and directed pressure. It is composed primarily of amphibole and plagio . . . View Full Definition
Poise: A cgs unit of resistance to fluid flow (viscosity). If a force of 1 dyne is needed to force two fluid layers with 1 cm2 area that are 1 cm apart past each other at a speed of 1 cm/s, the liq . . . View Full Definition
Non-Newtonian Fluid: A fluid whose viscosity changes when the gradient in flow speed changes. Colloidal suspensions and polymer solutions like ketchup and starch/water paste are non-Newtonian fluids.
Lithium (Li): Atomic number: 3, Atomic mass: 6.941 g.mol -1, Electronegativity: 1.0, Density: 0.53 g.cm -3 at 20 °C, Melting point: 180.5 °C, Boiling point: 1342 °C, Vanderwaals radius: 0.145 nm, Ionic ra . . . View Full Definition
Mak-Keol-Li: Makkeolli is a crude, raw rice wine in Korea. It is very cheap and easily found at any market. It is of an opaque cream color with low viscosity and a pungent odor.
Newtonian Fluid: A fluid whose viscosity doesn't depend on gradients in flow speed. Gases and low-molecular weight liquids are usually Newtonian fluids.
Helium (He): Atomic number: 2, Atomic mass: 4.00260 g.mol -1, Electronegativity: unknown, Density: 0.178*10 -3 g.cm -3 at 20 °C, Melting point: - 272.2 (26 atm) °C, Boiling point: - 268.9 °C, Vanderwaals . . . View Full Definition
Word of the Day:
Malty: An aromatic sensation created by a moderately volatile set of aldehydes and ketones that produces sensations reminiscent of toasted grains.
