Which of the following is true about Synovial fluid? (PGI Dec 07)



A It is a newtonian fluid

B It is a thixotropic fluid

C It is a Rheopectic fluid

D None of the above

Ans. B It is a thixotropic fluid

Fluid Newtonian

Newtonian fluid

Non newtonian

Newtonian Fluid is a fluid whose viscosity is constant in relation to rate of shear changes. Examples are All gases and Simple fluids

Non- Newtonian Fluid is a fluid whose viscosity changes as the rate of shear changes

Thixotropic

Rheopectic

Fluids whose viscosity decreases with increased rates of shear. e.g. Synovial Fluid

Fluids whose viscosity increases with increased rates of shear
