Viscosity of fluids effect on it's splashes?

  1. Aug 4, 2011 #1
    Hi all,
    i'm doing a research essay on how the viscosity of a fluid affects it's splashes.
    i'm currently stuck and do not know how i should approach this theoretically. i have no problem with the practical (filling up balloons with the fluid and dropping them from a height to see the splash distribution).
    also, i'm wondering how i could quantify this splash distribution?
