Viscosity (Dynamic) Unit Converter
Dynamic viscosity is a property of fluids that measures the resistance of the fluid to deformation under shear stress. It is a measure of the internal friction of a fluid, and is commonly referred to simply as viscosity. Dynamic viscosity is measured in units of pascal-seconds (Pa·s) or centipoise (cP).
The dynamic viscosity of a fluid is affected by its temperature and pressure, as well as its chemical composition and physical properties such as density and molecular structure. Liquids with high dynamic viscosity flow slowly, while those with low dynamic viscosity flow more easily.
Dynamic viscosity plays an important role in many areas of science and engineering, including fluid dynamics, materials science, and biomedical research. It is used to characterize the flow properties of fluids in many industrial processes, such as the production of polymers and the processing of food and pharmaceuticals. The study of dynamic viscosity is also important in the design and analysis of mechanical systems that involve fluid flow, such as pumps, turbines, and heat exchangers.
