ABSTRACT: Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) is a type of fluid replacement used as a treatment for dehydration. It involves drinking water mixed with sugar and salt, while continuing to eat. In this paper, density and viscosity of salt sugar solution at 308.15 K, 313.13 K, 318.15 K, 323.15K, 328.15 K and 333.15 K have been determined using Ostwalds viscometer. The results showed that density and viscosity decreased with increased in temperature. The density-temperature and viscosity-temperature curves obtained can be used to determine the extent of the accuracy of any locally prepared oral rehydration therapy.
