    • Abstract


      The temperature dependence of shear viscosity of the system nitrobenzene-n-heptane has been studied near the critical concentration. The critical exponent of the shear viscosity Φ was calculated from the empirical formula$$\eta = \eta _{id} \varepsilon _{sp} ^{ - \Phi } $$ and compared with the theoretical and experimental results obtained for other critical systems. The shear viscosity satisfies scaling law relations similar to those previously established for equilibrium properties.
