    The viscosity of a liquid is a measure of its resistance to flow. Its value can be found experimentally by putting a quantity of liquid between two moving parallel plates and measuring the friction force on one plate. In such an experiment, values of the coefficient of viscosity of a lubricating oil were found at different temperatures .

    a) Complete the following table with the appropriate values of μ and T , working to 4 decimal places.

    -2.3167

    b) It is thought that μ and T are related by an equation of the form μ =AT^m

    Take natural logarithms of this equation and hence show how your graph can be used to estimate the values of A and m.
