Sealed Gravitational Capillary Viscometers for Volatile Liquids

Published

Author(s)

Arno R. Laesecke

Abstract

The evolution of sealed gravitational capillary viscometers for measurements of volatile liquids is reviewed. Two corrections need to be applied to measurements with them: (i) the vapor buoyancy correction and, if coiled capillaries are used, (ii) the radial acceleration correction. These corrections are documented here so that they will be applied in the future. Examples of their magnitudes are given to indicate their significance.
