How does viscosity affect chocolate?

What is viscosity?

“Viscosity is the quality or fact of being viscous”

“Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid to deformation under shear stress. It is commonly perceived as "thickness", or resistance to pouring.”

Viscosity is represented with the Greek letter eta ‘ɳ’. Viscosity is a fluid 's internal resistance to flow, you can also think of it as the resistance a fluid opposes to the displacements of its particles in relation to others

Where:

factory In the second term we went to the Valor chocolate, and there they showed us the importance of viscosity in chocolate, the most important factor that affects the chocolate’s viscosity is temperature, the chocolate*…show more content…*

In the production of chocolate the temperature must be average, so that it flows quickly while producing, but must be viscous enough to be shaped appropriately. Also the cross sectional area affects the stress required to break it and this will in turn affect the texture.

I found an interesting study some year 12 year group did about chocolate and the physics behind it, “In the production of chocolate the temperature must be average, so that it flows quickly while producing, but must be viscous enough to be shaped appropriately. Also the cross sectional area affects the stress required to break it and this will in turn affect the texture. When a liquid is able to move quicker it is less viscous. Also, when the cross sectional area is greater, the force required will also be great to break the chocolate piece.”

Physics principles:

There are various viscous substances that have different types of viscous behaviors, Newtonian fluids and non-Newtonian*…show more content…*

That is equivalent to saying that these forces are proportional to the rates of change of the velocity vector of the fluid as one moves away from the point issue in several directions. These are those who have a constant viscosity (flow)which means that the flow behaviour or viscosity only changes with changes in temperature or pressure, we can easily recognise them because they take on the shape of the container they are poured into, we also call them “normal

## The Chocolate Tempering Process

838 Words | 4 PagesAfter the conching is complete and the chocolate paste is formed. Then, tempering process will take over in the production of chocolate. Basically, tempering chocolate involves putting it through a cycle of temperatures which involve heating, cooling and resting under controlled conditions to produce an even crystallization of the ingredients throughout the chocolate in the most stable form. During the process, temperature, time, and agitation are the three essential variables that influence the size, type, and number of cocoa butter crystals being formed. Temperature is a significant due to there are specific temperatures for formation and melting of cocoa butter crystals.

Here, discretized model was exported to ANSYS Fluent 14.0 for solving the problem. As study was performed with velocity of vehicle at 40 m/s, the flow would be incompressible with variations in pressure around the body surface without altering the density of surrounding fluid. Hence, pressure based solver was employed with absolute velocity formulation and steady state flow

## Bernoulli's Theorem Essay

734 Words | 3 PagesBy implementing the second law of motion the particle will accelerate or decelerate if there exists a pressure difference over the particle. The particle’s velocity will increase when it is approaching a low-pressure region and decrease its velocity at a high-pressure region. This principle can also be seen in terms of pressure. If a fluid is slowed down in the pipe the pressure will rise and vice versa. This principle is applicable to the basic way an aircraft’s wing is able to generate lift (Figure 10).

## Introduction To Fluid Mechanics

999 Words | 4 PagesFig.1 Fig.1 Visualization of a moving Fluid Fluid dynamics often offers a systematic structure—that embraces empirical and semi-empirical laws derived from flow measurement and used to solve practical problems. The solution to a fluid dynamics problem, typically involved calculating various properties of the fluid, such as velocity, pressure, and temperature, density as functions of space and time. Applications of Fluid Mechanics 2.1 Bernoulli 's Principle in Action: As fluid moves from a wider pipe to a narrower one, the volume of the fluid that moves a given distance in a time period given does not change. But as the width of the narrower pipe is smaller, the fluid must move faster (that is, with greater dynamic pressure) in order to move the same amount of fluid the same distance in the same amount of time. Observe the behavior of a river: in a wide, unconstructed region, it flows slowly, but if its flow is narrowed by canyon walls, it speeds
