# How to Calculate and Solve for Relative Apparent Viscosity (for Concentrated suspension) | Rheology

The image above represents relative apparent viscosity (for concentrated suspension).

To compute for relative apparent viscosity (for concentrated suspension), three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Intrinsic Viscosity (ηi), Solid Landing (φ) and Maximum Solid Landing (φm).

The formula for calculating relative apparent viscosity (for concentrated suspension):

ηra = (1 – φ / φm)-(ηim

Where:

ηra = Relative Apparent Viscosity
ηi = Intrinsic Viscosity
φ = Solid Landing
φm = Maximum Solid Landing

Let’s solve an example;
Find the relative apparent viscosity when the intrinsic viscosity is 20, the solid landing is 32 and the maximum solid landing is 12.

This implies that;

ηi = Intrinsic Viscosity = 20
φ = Solid Landing = 32
φm = Maximum Solid Landing = 12

ηra = (1 – φ / φm)-(ηim
ηra = (1 – 32 / 12)-(20) x 12
ηra = (1 – 2.66)-240
ηra = (-1.66)-240
ηra = 5.705e-54

Therefore, the relative apparent viscosity (for concentrated suspension) is 5.705e-54.
