The viscosity of fluids exhibits an anomalous enhancement near the gas-liquid critical point. It is shown that the behavior of the viscosity of nitrogen as observed experimentally by Zozulya and Blagoi is consistent with current theoretical predictions. An equation is proposed for the viscosity of nitrogen that incorporates the observed critical enhancement in the viscosity near the critical point.
