pipeFLOW RATES :  The following data sets show the flow of a liquid through a pipe.   There are two tests shown, each testing the rate of flow of different liquids:  pooponol and peepinol, as they flow though pipes of different diameters.

Data Set 1: Pooponol   Data Set 2: Peepinol
Diameter of Pipe Flow   Diameter of Pipe Flow
.2 100   .2 200
.4 400   .4 400
.6 650   .6 800
.8 700   .8 1100
1.0 800   1.0 1250
1.2 1000   1.2 1275

Graphing:  Use two different lines, of different colors to graph the data.  Make one line for Peepinol and another line for Poopinol.

Analysis
1.  At what diameter do both liquids have the same flow rate? __________
2.  Which liquid generally moves faster in the pipe (no matter what diameter)? _______________

Extra: Peepinol has a higher VISCOSITY than poopinol. What does VISCOSITY mean?
