The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress. For liquids, it corresponds to the informal concept of thickness; for example, honey has a much higher viscosity than water. The dynamic (shear) viscosity of a fluid expresses its resistance to shearing flows, where adjacent layers move parallel to each other with different speeds. The physical unit of dynamic viscosity in SI units is the poiseuille (PI), which is rarely used; it is equivalent to the pascal second (Pa·s). The cgs physical unit for dynamic viscosity is the poise (P). This Viscosity (Dynamic) converter allows you to convert attopoise (aP), centipoise (cP), decipoise (dP), dekapoise (daP), dyne-second/sq. centimeter (dyn·s/cm²), exapoise (EP), femtopoise (fP), gigapoise (GP), gram/centimeter-second (g/(cm·s)), hectopoise (hP), kilogram-force-second/sq. meter (kgf·s/m²), kilopoise (kP), megapoise (MP), micropoise (µP), millinewton-second/sq. meter (mN·s/m²), millipoise (mP), nanopoise (nP), newton second/sq. meter (N·s/m²), pascal-second (Pa·s), petapoise (PP), picopoise (pP), poise (P), pound/foot-hour (lb/(ft·h)) among other units related to Viscosity (Dynamic).
