Example Question #1 : Liquids And Solutions
If a liquid has a low resistance to flow, it has a low __________.
By definition, viscosity is the measure of a liquid's resistance to flow. If a liquid has a low viscosity, it has a low resistance to flow. It may not necessarily always have a low boiling point, melting point, and/or vapor pressure due to this characteristic. Viscosity is just a way to measure and describe one physical characteristic (resistance to flow) of a liquid. The volume of a liquid does not say anything about its physical properties.
