PROBLEM 8Q

What is viscosity? How does it depend on intermolecular forces?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 8Q

Step 1: 

Viscosity is defined as the resistance of a liquid to flow.  A liquid have more viscosity, it flows slowly.  It  depends on

  1.  molecular shape, Size and mass
  2. increasing in longer molecules which can interact over a greater area, so that they tend to become entangled.

For example: n-Pentane has lower viscosity n-Octane. This is because  n-Octane has a longer chain molecules which can easily become entangled than n-pentane molecule.
