Physics[edit]

In physics, Trouton's ratio states that latent heat is connected to boiling point roughly by:

\frac{L_{vap}}{T_{boiling}} \approx 87-88 \frac{J}{K mol}.

Rheology[edit]

In rheology, Trouton's ratio is the ratio of extensional viscosity to shear viscosity.[1] For a Newtonian fluid Trouton's ratio is 3.[2]
