dy·nam·ic vis·cos·i·ty (μ),

the internal or molecular frictional resistance of a fluid by Newton law of viscosity as the ratio of the applied force per unit area to the relative velocity of adjacent fluid layers (produced by the force).

An Ares 2000 Rheometer (TA Instruments) was used to measure the dynamic viscosity. Finally, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR, NICOLET 4700 FTIR, Thermo Electron Corporation) was used to further study the crystallinity degree quantitatively.
For lubricating fluids, heat generated by the internal friction and the corresponding increase in temperature affects the viscosity of the fluid; hence, it may not be realistic to constant function of plastic dynamic viscosity knowing fully well that space-dependent internal heat source is significant.
Additionally, they stated that a higher ethanol mole fraction in the ethanol-water mixture results in a significant lowering of the interaction forces, though by mixing ethanol with water liquid properties such as the density [rho] and the dynamic viscosity [mu] may be changed significantly.

where [[theta].sub.A] is the advancing dynamic contact angle; [[theta].sub.R] is the receding dynamic contact angle; [[theta].sub.0A] is the equilibrium advancing contact angle; [[theta].sub.0R] is the equilibrium receding contact angle; capillary number, Ca = [mu]U/[sigma], which shows the relative importance of viscous force to capillary force; [mu] is the dynamic viscosity of liquid; U is the liquid contact line velocity; and [sigma] is the surface tension of the liquid mixture.

Embryo culture medium properties were assumed to be those of liquid water, (density [rho] = 998.2 kg/[m.sup.3] and dynamic viscosity [mu] = 0.001003 kg/(m x s)).
Dynamic viscosity was calculated using the following formula:
