A simple capillary viscometer was used to demonstrate how one obtains the true shear stress-shear rate rheological properties of a polymer solution. The methodology, described in this paper, shows how the pressure drop caused by the friction of the liquid flowing through the tube is separated from the pressure drops associated with entrance and exit effects and the elastic energy of the polymer solution.
