Viscosity in a liquid does not depend on the
Viscosity is a measure of a liquid's resistance to flow, or how "thick" or "sticky" it is. The viscosity of a liquid depends on the nature of the liquid, the temperature of the liquid, and the relative velocity between the liquid layers. However, it does not depend on the area of the surfaces in contact or the normal reaction between the liquid layers. To put it simply, imagine you have two identical cups filled with the same liquid. If you pour the liquid from one cup to the other, you will notice that the liquid flows more slowly than water. This is because the liquid has a higher viscosity. The viscosity depends on the type of liquid (e.g. honey is more viscous than water), and how fast or slow the liquid is moving (e.g. syrup flows more slowly than water). The viscosity also changes with temperature, as higher temperatures tend to decrease the viscosity of a liquid. However, the area of the surfaces in contact and the normal reaction between the liquid layers do not affect the viscosity of a liquid. These factors might affect how the liquid flows, but they don't change the liquid's intrinsic property of viscosity.
