Calculating and plotting the entrainment rate as function of viscosity for 3 wind speeds

        p1h = 1-np.exp(-3600*r)
        ax.plot(vis, p1h, color+ls, label='Li(2017), %s m/s wind, IFT: %s' % (wind, ift))

ax.set_xlim(vis.min(), vis.max())
ax.set_ylim(0, 1.05)

# Make second x-axis showing viscosity in Centipoise
ax2 = ax.twiny()
x1, x2 = ax.get_xlim()
ax2.set_xlim(1000*x1, 1000*x2)
ax2.set_xlabel('Dynamic viscosity [Centipoise]')

ax.set_ylabel('Fraction entrained in 1 hour')
ax.set_xlabel('Dynamic viscosity [Pa*s] / [kg/ms]')
