# An empirical expression that reproduces the viscosity of water in the range 20100 C is where 20 is the viscosity at 20C. Explore (by using mathematical software) the possibility of fitting an exponential curve to this expression and hence identifying an activation energy for the viscosity. log 1.3272(20-0/C)-0.001053(20-0/C}2 1C+105 1720

Chapter 19, Problem B #2

An empirical expression that reproduces the viscosity of water in the range 20–100 °C is where η_{20} is the viscosity at 20°C.

Explore (by using mathematical software) the possibility of fitting an exponential curve to this expression and hence identifying an activation energy for the viscosity.
