ABSTRACT
Viscosity and density are two important examples of a liquid’s quantifiable property. The
apparent weight of something is influenced by its mass (symbol m), the volume it occupies
(symbol V), and gravity. Materials are distinct and can be defined by density 𝜌, but this property
is different for every state of matter of the same material. Relative density (or Specific Gravity,
symbol SG) is the scale of something (identified as 𝜌 in the equation) from a reference. The
coefficient of absolute viscosity (dynamic viscosity, symbol 𝜇) is the ratio of shear stress and
shear rate (deformation rate), fluids resist motion and cause a reaction force in the opposite
direction. The weight of the pycnometer and the test specimen (WPO) is the quantified output
of the relative density experiment. Data from the viscometer test was used to compute the
specific weight of the steel ball, correction factor, dynamic viscosity, the corrected velocity of
the steel ball, observed velocity of the steel ball, kinematic viscosity, specific weight of
glycerin, the ratio of steel ball diameter and viscometer ID. The specific gravity of the two
samples measured using the pycnometer method was determined from the study of the principle
of density. The falling sphere viscometer method provided fine data, which was used to
calculate the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin.
OBJECTIVES:
1. To determine the relative density of Glucose (C6H12O6) and Ethylene Glycol
(C2H6O2).
2. To determine the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin.
3. Create a V vs. DSB/DT graph.

THEORIES AND PRINCIPLES
Studying liquids is a course not satisfied by the classical mechanics of rigid and deformable
bodies and requires modern theories to grasp its behaviors. Viscosity and density are two
important examples of a liquid’s quantifiable property; however, the earliest form of a theory
related to density was 250 B.C.—the widely known story of Archimedes and the Crown of
Syracuse (Grigg, 2013, para. 2). The apparent weight of something is influenced by its mass
(symbol m), the volume it occupies (symbol V), and gravity, e.g., one pound of iron is equal to
one pound of cotton, but the former is smaller in size.
𝜌 =
𝑚
𝑉
Materials are distinct and can be defined by density 𝜌, but this property is different for
every state of matter of the same material. For example, liquid water is denser than any of its
vapor states. Density is also different between states of liquid water. Relative density (or
Specific Gravity, symbol SG) is the scale of something (identified as 𝜌 in the equation) as from.
Liquid in terms of density, and liquid water (identified as 𝜌𝐻2 𝑂 in the equation) is widely chosen
as the reference because it is convenient in most aspects (Aaron, 2021).
𝑆𝐺 =
𝜌
𝜌𝐻2 𝑂
As density has a strict relationship with temperature, specific gravity follows. In the
experiment with density, both the water and the sample must have the same temperature. The
other property studied in this experiment is viscosity. The coefficient of absolute viscosity
(dynamic viscosity, symbol 𝜇) is the ratio of shear stress and shear rate (deformation rate),
fluids resist motion and cause a reaction force in the opposite direction. In another perspective,
solids in motion that interact with static fluids experience an opposing force establishing
equilibrium and restraining the position or velocity of the solid. For spheres traveling through
Newtonian fluids, the drag force increases with velocity as defined by Stoke’s law:
𝐹𝐷 = 6𝜇𝜋𝑟𝑉
⃗
Where FD is the drag force, r is the radius of the sphere, and 𝑉
⃗ is its relative velocity to the
fluid.

DISCUSSION
The idea that water expands when it turns into a vapor made the first horsepower-independent
mass transport feasible and paved the first steps of the industrial revolution. Combustion engines
are designed around the idea that energy is released in the form of heat (rise in temperature) and
work (increase in volume, decrease in density).
Completing the concept of viscosity in fluid mechanics provided engineers with the necessities
to calculate and optimize more aerodynamic shapes since viscosity plays a role in fluid-solid
interaction. High-performing lubricants allowed machine parts in vehicles and machinery to
operate at higher loads and speeds and prolong usability. Hydraulics and pneumatics are widely
applied in the design of heavy construction equipment and robotics because the relationship
between fluid dynamics and kinematics is well defined by viscosity.

SAMPLE PROBLEMS
1. What is relative density / specific gravity, and how is it related to density?
-It is the ratio of the two densities of substances, the specific gravity of a substance is
commonly in reference to the density of water (about 1000 kg/m3)
2. What happens to density if you halve the amount of a substance?
-its density remains the same if the volume occupied by that substance changes
accordingly (the substance itself, either half, does not expand or contract).
3. What is Bulk density?
-granular materials contain air (or space) between particles because each particle
cannot deform to occupy these spaces and is restricted by contact with other particles.
As such, the bulk density is used to define these materials; it is the density of the
materials whose volume includes the empty spaces.
4. What are the differences between kinematic and dynamic viscosity?
-dynamic viscosity (absolute viscosity) is independent of density, whereas kinematic
density is defined by the dynamic viscosity and density. Dynamic viscosity is defined
by force applied to a substance, and the motion of the substance defines kinematic
viscosity.
5. What are non-Newtonian fluids? Explain. Give examples
-one of the characteristics of non-Newtonian fluids is having varying viscosity with
the deformation rate, a non-linear relationship between shear stress and shear rate. For
example, magma is a quasi-Newtonian fluid (Sonder et al., 2006), meaning it
possesses non-Newtonian behavior along with other viscosity characteristics. Honey is
another non-Newtonian fluid, its viscosity changes (decreases) with time as it
experiences shear stress—thixotropic behavior (Rusty, 2010).

LIST OF APPARATUS / SET-UP
1. Pycnometer
-it is an assembly consisting of the glass body
and the capillary stopper. It maintains the
volume of its contents at a specified value
(photo shows a pycnometer volume of 50 ml).
2. Hydrometer

weight of a specimen.
5. Falling sphere viscometer
-a glass tube that contains the test specimen in a tall column and a
metal ball denser than the test specimen. The glass tube has two
markings one meter apart between the ends.
5
6. Stopwatch
-it is a recording device that measures the period
elapsed.
7. Thermometer

CONCLUSION
- The specific gravity of the two samples measured using the pycnometer method was
determined from the study of the principle of density, computed as the ratio of two
densities. The falling sphere viscometer method provided fine data, which was used to
calculate the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin, V vs. DSB/DT line plot is
included in the analysis to visualize the precision and consistency of the data.
RECOMMENDATION
- Measuring the time elapsed for the steel ball to travel the one-meter distance relies on
the physical reaction of the operator, an array of sensors should be included in the set-
up of the viscometer.

  • 1. MAPÚA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MECHANICAL AND MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING ME139L-2/E01 MECHANICAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY 1 WRITTEN REPORT ON RELATIVE DENSITY AND VISCOSITY EXPERIMENT NO. 1 SUBMITTED BY: BATUYONG, JUSTINE P. 2019100680 SUBMITTED TO: ENGR. PAULO RAFAEL V. MERIS MARCH 19, 2022
  • 2. ii ABSTRACT Viscosity and density are two important examples of a liquid’s quantifiable property. The apparent weight of something is influenced by its mass (symbol m), the volume it occupies (symbol V), and gravity. Materials are distinct and can be defined by density 𝜌, but this property is different for every state of matter of the same material. Relative density (or Specific Gravity, symbol SG) is the scale of something (identified as 𝜌 in the equation) from a reference. The coefficient of absolute viscosity (dynamic viscosity, symbol 𝜇) is the ratio of shear stress and shear rate (deformation rate), fluids resist motion and cause a reaction force in the opposite direction. The weight of the pycnometer and the test specimen (WPO) is the quantified output of the relative density experiment. Data from the viscometer test was used to compute the specific weight of the steel ball, correction factor, dynamic viscosity, the corrected velocity of the steel ball, observed velocity of the steel ball, kinematic viscosity, specific weight of glycerin, the ratio of steel ball diameter and viscometer ID. The specific gravity of the two samples measured using the pycnometer method was determined from the study of the principle of density. The falling sphere viscometer method provided fine data, which was used to calculate the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin. OBJECTIVES: 1. To determine the relative density of Glucose (C6H12O6) and Ethylene Glycol (C2H6O2). 2. To determine the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin. 3. Create a V vs. DSB/DT graph.

  • 4. 1 THEORIES AND PRINCIPLES Studying liquids is a course not satisfied by the classical mechanics of rigid and deformable bodies and requires modern theories to grasp its behaviors. Viscosity and density are two important examples of a liquid’s quantifiable property; however, the earliest form of a theory related to density was 250 B.C.—the widely known story of Archimedes and the Crown of Syracuse (Grigg, 2013, para. 2). The apparent weight of something is influenced by its mass (symbol m), the volume it occupies (symbol V), and gravity, e.g., one pound of iron is equal to one pound of cotton, but the former is smaller in size. 𝜌 = 𝑚 𝑉 Materials are distinct and can be defined by density 𝜌, but this property is different for every state of matter of the same material. For example, liquid water is denser than any of its vapor states. Density is also different between states of liquid water. Relative density (or Specific Gravity, symbol SG) is the scale of something (identified as 𝜌 in the equation) as from. Liquid in terms of density, and liquid water (identified as 𝜌𝐻2 𝑂 in the equation) is widely chosen as the reference because it is convenient in most aspects (Aaron, 2021). 𝑆𝐺 = 𝜌 𝜌𝐻2 𝑂 As density has a strict relationship with temperature, specific gravity follows. In the experiment with density, both the water and the sample must have the same temperature. The other property studied in this experiment is viscosity. The coefficient of absolute viscosity (dynamic viscosity, symbol 𝜇) is the ratio of shear stress and shear rate (deformation rate), fluids resist motion and cause a reaction force in the opposite direction. In another perspective, solids in motion that interact with static fluids experience an opposing force establishing equilibrium and restraining the position or velocity of the solid. For spheres traveling through Newtonian fluids, the drag force increases with velocity as defined by Stoke’s law: 𝐹𝐷 = 6𝜇𝜋𝑟𝑉 ⃗ Where FD is the drag force, r is the radius of the sphere, and 𝑉 ⃗ is its relative velocity to the fluid. Eq. 1 Eq. 2 Eq. 3
  • 5. 2 DISCUSSION The idea that water expands when it turns into a vapor made the first horsepower-independent mass transport feasible and paved the first steps of the industrial revolution. Combustion engines are designed around the idea that energy is released in the form of heat (rise in temperature) and work (increase in volume, decrease in density). Completing the concept of viscosity in fluid mechanics provided engineers with the necessities to calculate and optimize more aerodynamic shapes since viscosity plays a role in fluid-solid interaction. High-performing lubricants allowed machine parts in vehicles and machinery to operate at higher loads and speeds and prolong usability. Hydraulics and pneumatics are widely applied in the design of heavy construction equipment and robotics because the relationship between fluid dynamics and kinematics is well defined by viscosity.

  • 6. 3 SAMPLE PROBLEMS 1. What is relative density / specific gravity, and how is it related to density? -It is the ratio of the two densities of substances, the specific gravity of a substance is commonly in reference to the density of water (about 1000 kg/m3) 2. What happens to density if you halve the amount of a substance? -its density remains the same if the volume occupied by that substance changes accordingly (the substance itself, either half, does not expand or contract). 3. What is Bulk density? -granular materials contain air (or space) between particles because each particle cannot deform to occupy these spaces and is restricted by contact with other particles. As such, the bulk density is used to define these materials; it is the density of the materials whose volume includes the empty spaces. 4. What are the differences between kinematic and dynamic viscosity? -dynamic viscosity (absolute viscosity) is independent of density, whereas kinematic density is defined by the dynamic viscosity and density. Dynamic viscosity is defined by force applied to a substance, and the motion of the substance defines kinematic viscosity. 5. What are non-Newtonian fluids? Explain. Give examples -one of the characteristics of non-Newtonian fluids is having varying viscosity with the deformation rate, a non-linear relationship between shear stress and shear rate. For example, magma is a quasi-Newtonian fluid (Sonder et al., 2006), meaning it possesses non-Newtonian behavior along with other viscosity characteristics. Honey is another non-Newtonian fluid, its viscosity changes (decreases) with time as it experiences shear stress—thixotropic behavior (Rusty, 2010).
  • 7. 4 LIST OF APPARATUS / SET-UP 1. Pycnometer -it is an assembly consisting of the glass body and the capillary stopper. It maintains the volume of its contents at a specified value (photo shows a pycnometer volume of 50 ml). 2. Hydrometer -it is a submersible device that displaces volume in a graduated cylinder filled with the reference liquid (water). It directly measures the specific gravity which is indicated in its scale.

  • 13. 9 CONCLUSION - The specific gravity of the two samples measured using the pycnometer method was determined from the study of the principle of density, computed as the ratio of two densities. The falling sphere viscometer method provided fine data, which was used to calculate the dynamic and kinematic viscosity of glycerin, V vs. DSB/DT line plot is included in the analysis to visualize the precision and consistency of the data. RECOMMENDATION - Measuring the time elapsed for the steel ball to travel the one-meter distance relies on the physical reaction of the operator, an array of sensors should be included in the set- up of the viscometer.
