Try investigating drop time vs. temperature, type of oil , measurement, mass or density of ball, width of column. This can be very messy; oil is such a pain to scrub up you’re probably used to having someone else clean up for you.

You’ll need to calculate resistivity so measure the diameter of the wire with a micrometer in several locations (does it vary?). Hmmm – that is turning out to be way more interesting than first thought. It is vitally important that motor oil would not get too skinny in summer nor too thick in winter in any other case the automotive engine would possibly seize. A Falling Ball Viscometer uses the rate of descent of a ball bearing to measure the viscosity of a liquid.

So don’t be surprised if your teacher appears reluctant and suggests you utilize honey. The very first thing you … Read More
