The term “viscosity” means resistance to pouring.
The basic metric unit of absolute viscosity is the “poise” (1 gm/cm-second or dyne-second per square centimeter).
- The common unit for expressing absolute viscosity is the “centipoise” (1/100 of a poise).
- Water at 68.4°F (20, 2°C) has an absolute viscosity of one centipoise
