Viscosity is the measure of a substance’s resistance to motion under an applied force. A viscous fluid is sticky, thick and syrupy to a greater or lesser extent.  Uses: Viscosity measurements are used in the food industry to maximize production efficiency and cost effectiveness. It affects the rate at which a product travels through a pipe, how long it takes to set or dry, and the time it takes to dispense the fluid into packaging.  Viscosity measurements project the effectiveness of lubricating oil and determines design elements of pipelines.
