Calculate density and viscosity of glycerol/water mixtures

Enter temperature [C]:

Enter volume of water [litres]:

Enter volume of glycerol [litres]:

Click this button to do the sum:

Fraction of glycerol by volume is:

Fraction of glycerol by mass is:

Density of mixture is [kg/m3]:

Dynamic viscosity of mixture is [Ns/m2]:

Kinematic viscosity of mixture is [m2/s]:

Based on the parameterisation in Cheng (2008) Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 47 3285-3288.

Modified on 28 June 2016. Density calculation has been changed: equation 25 in Cheng's paper to compute the density of the mixture should use the glycerine fraction by VOLUME and not by mass. Thanks to Paul Debue for pointing this out.
