How to Calculate and Solve for Viscosity | Ceramics

The image above represents viscosity.

To compute for viscosity, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Force applied (F), Area (A) and Derivation Ratio of Velocity to Distance of Fluid Flow (dv/dy).

The formula for calculating viscosity:

η = F/A / dv/dy

Where:

η = Viscosity
F = Force Applied
A = Area
dv/dy = Derivation Ratio of Velocity to Distance of Fluid Flow

Let’s solve an example;
Find the viscosity when the force applied is 21, area is 14 and derivation ratio of velocity to distance of fluid flow is 19.

This implies that;

F = Force Applied = 21
A = Area = 14
dv/dy = Derivation Ratio of Velocity to Distance of Fluid Flow = 19

η = F/A / dv/dy
η = (21/14) / (19)
η = (1.5) / (19)
η = 0.0789

Therefore, the viscosity is 0.0789 Pa s.

Calculating Force Applied when the Viscosity, the Area and the Derivation ratio of velocity to distance of fluid flow is Given.

F = (η x dv/dy) A

Where;

F = Force Applied
η = Viscosity
A = Area
dv/dy = Derivation Ratio of Velocity to Distance of Fluid Flow

Let’s solve an example;
Find the force applied when the viscosity is 20, the area is 30 and the derivation is 8.

This implies that;

η = Viscosity = 20
A = Area = 30
dv/dy = Derivation Ratio of Velocity to Distance of Fluid Flow = 8

F = (η x dv/dy) A
F = (20 x 8) 30
F = (160) 30
F = 4800

Therefore, the force applied is 4800.

How to Calculate and Solve for Pressure Gradient | Polymer & Textile

The image above represents pressure gradient.

To compute for pressure gradient, four essential parameters are needed and these parameters are value (α), viscosity (μ), screw rotation speed (N) and proportionality constant that depends on screw geometry (B).

The formula for calculating pressure gradient:

ΔP = αμN / B

Where;

ΔP = Pressure Gradient
α = Value
μ = Viscosity
N = Screw Rotation Speed
B = Proportionality Constant that Depends on Screw Geometry

Let’s solve an example;
Find the pressure gradient when the value is 2, viscosity is 9, screw rotation speed is 20 and proportionality constant that depends on screw geometry is 24.

This implies that;

α = Value = 2
μ = Viscosity = 9
N = Screw Rotation Speed = 20
B = Proportionality Constant that Depends on Screw Geometry = 24

ΔP = αμN / B
ΔP = (2)(9)(20) / 24
ΔP = 360 / 24
ΔP = 15

Therefore, the pressure gradient is 15.

Calculating the Value when the Pressure Gradient, Viscosity, Screw Rotation Speed and Proportionality Constant that Depends on Screw Geometry is Given.

α = ΔP x B / μN

Where;

α = Value
ΔP = Pressure Gradient
μ = Viscosity
N = Screw Rotation Speed
B = Proportionality Constant that Depends on Screw Geometry

Let’s solve an example;
Find the value when the pressure gradient is 20, viscosity is 5, screw rotation speed is 11 and the proportionality constant that depends on screw geometry is 7.

This implies that;

ΔP = Pressure Gradient = 20
μ = Viscosity = 5
N = Screw Rotation Speed = 11
B = Proportionality Constant that Depends on Screw Geometry = 7

α = ΔP x B / μN
α = 20 x 7 / (5)(11)
α = 140 / 55
α = 2.54

Therefore, the value is 2.54.

μ = Viscosity = 12

ρ = Re x μ / vd
ρ = 26 x 12 / (14)(8)
ρ = 312 / 112
ρ = 2.78

Therefore, the density of fluid is 2.78.

Calculating the Mean Flow Velocity when the Reynold’s Number, Density of Fluid, Diameter of Die and Viscosity is Given.

v = Re x μ / ρd

Where:

v = Mean Flow Velocity
Re = Reynold’s Number
ρ = Density of Fluid
d = Diameter of Die
μ = Viscosity

Let’s solve an example;
Given that density of fluid is 22, Reynold’s number is 32, diameter of die is 9 and viscosity is 6. Find the mean flow velocity?

This implies that;

Re = Reynold’s Number = 32
ρ = Density of Fluid = 22
d = Diameter of Die = 9
μ = Viscosity = 6

v = Re x μ / ρd
v = 32 x 6 / (22)(9)
v = 192 / 198
v = 0.96

Therefore, the mean flow velocity is 0.96.
