Relative Viscosity RV, also called viscosity ratio is: " v/v0 " with
v = viscosity of polymer solution of defiined concentration c
v0 = viscosity of solvent at same temperature
Relative Viscosity has no dimension.
Intrinsic Viscosity IV, also called limiting viscosity number at
concentration zero, is:
" lim (c->0) [ln(v/v0)/c] "
" lim (c->0) [ln RV/c] "
in ml/g or 100ml/g
