ASTM D7042 Standard Test Method for Dynamic Viscosity and Density of Liquids by Stabinger Viscometer (and the Calculation of Kinematic Viscosity)-- eLearning Course

accredited iacet provider
Price: $174
About the Course

This test method covers and specifies a procedure for the concurrent measurement of both the dynamic viscosity, and the density, of liquid petroleum products and crude oils, both transparent and opaque. The kinematic viscosity, can be obtained by dividing the dynamic viscosity, by the density, obtained at the same test temperature.

The course takes approximately 1 hour to complete and includes instructional video content, interactive knowledge checks, and a self-grading quiz. Downloadable resources include a pdf of the standard.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the Stabinger Viscometer and related apparatus used for the concurrent measurement of both the dynamic viscosity and the density of liquid petroleum products and crude oils
