The paper presents new data on the viscosity of CH4, C2H 4, C2H6, C3H8, and C4H10 at atmospheric pressure and in the temperature range 25-200°C. The measurements were absolute and were performed in an oscillating-disk instrument. The results fit into the extended law of corresponding states of Kestin, Ro, and Wakeham. The scaling constants σ and ε for each gas which assure such a fit are calculated in the paper.
