Viscosity in day to day life
Some Daily life examples :
1.Honey: You must have noticed when the honey bottle is nearly empty, and it takes very long for honey to reach the mouth of the bottle. Such behavior of a liquid in the flow is described by an intrinsic property called viscosity.
2. Engine Oils: Thin oils have lower viscosity and pour more easily at low temperatures than thicker oils, which have a higher viscosity. Thin oils reduce friction in engines and help engines start quickly during cold weather. Whereas, thick oils are better at maintaining film strength and oil pressure at high temperatures and loads.
3.Printing Ink: Ink viscosity affects how well the ink can transfer over from the anilox to the plate, and from the plate onto the printing substrate. It affects how well the ink will dry on the substrate. This physical property provides valuable information on the consistency and longevity of the finished product.
4. Paints: Viscosity determines how much paint should be applied to a brush or roller, and how much paint is necessary to cover a given area. Furthermore, the viscosity of a paint or coating will determine the appropriate calibration for sprayers and airbrushes.
5. Blood: For the heart and circulatory system, though, thinner, more watery blood might be better. It is important to understand the role of blood viscosity as a clinical marker. Highly viscous blood does not slide as smoothly as less viscous blood, leading to turbulence that can cause damage to the delicate structure of the blood vessels.
