Viscosity

Science / Geology / Viscosity: The resistance of a fluid to flow. Fluids with a high viscosity resist flow. Fluids with a low viscosity flow freely.

Lithium (Li)

Helium (He)

Science / Periodic Table of Elements / 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 radius MORE

Ekmanspiral

Science / Tides and Currents / 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. They spir MORE

Mak-Keol-Li

Entertainment / Liquor / 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. MORE

Amphibolite

Science / Geology / 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 plagioclase, usu MORE

Newtonian Fluid

Science / Chemistry / Newtonian Fluid: A fluid whose viscosity doesn't depend on gradients in flow speed. Gases and low-molecular weight liquids are usually Newtonian fluids. MORE
