1. Calculation of Kinematic Viscosities:

For Test Temperature at 40°C

ν=ct

= 111.13 × 0.247sec

= 27.4491mm²/sec

For Test Temperature at 60°C

ν=ct

= 113 × 0.247sec

= 27.9110 mm²/sec

2. Calculation of Dynamic Viscosities:

For Test Temperature at 40°C

ν= η/ρ

27.4491 =η 0.5276

η = 27.4491 x 0.5276

= 14.4821 mPa.S

For Test Temperature at 60°C

ν= η/ρ

27.9110 =η/ 0.5276

η = 27.9110 x 0.5276

= 14.7258 mPa.S

Conclusions:
The viscosity determination of test chemical was done as per the test guideline OECD 114 using Redwood Viscometer No. 1. Kinematic viscosity (experimental) of test chemical at 40°C and 60°C was 27.4491 mm²/sec and 27.9110 mm²/s, respectively. Dynamic viscosity (calculated) of test chemical at 40°C and 60°C was 14.4821 mPa.S and 14.7258 mPa.S, respectively.
Executive summary:

The viscosity determination of test chemical was done as per the test guideline OECD 114 using Redwood Viscometer No. 1. Kinematic viscosity (experimental) of test chemical at 40°C and 60°C was 27.4491 mm²/sec and 27.9110 mm²/s, respectively.
