SL Physics IA help!!!

Recommended Posts

So I am in SL physics and am working on my IA. I planned on doing an experiment involving kinematic viscosity and temperature, is it too simple to just measure the time it takes for the different temperatures of liquid to fall? I'm worried that this is too simple, but the alternative is to create a whole new experiment to measure dynamic viscosity and divide that by the density. 

If showing the relationship between time and temperature is not complex enough, what should I do instead?

The mathematics may not be as straightforward as you think. I am not fully convinced you know how viscosity is measured (eg the mathematics of viscometers and implementing a makeshift version). With that said, if you do it rigorously, measure the viscosity of a fluid is probably good enough.
