Methanol - Dynamic and Kinematic Viscosity

Online calculator, figures and tables showing dynamic and kinematic viscosity of liquid methanol,CH3OH, at varying temperature - Imperial and SI Units

The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress.

For further definitions, go to Absolute (dynamic) and kinematic viscosityAbsolute or dynamic viscosity is used to calculate Reynold's Number to determine if a fluid flow is laminar, transient or turbulent.

Tabulated values of methanol viscosity and viscosity units conversion are given below the figures.

Online Methanol Viscosity Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate dynamic or kinematic viscosity of liquid methanol at given temperatures. The atmospheric boiling point of methanol is 64.15 °C (147.47 °F), and methanol must be pressurized to be present as liquid above that temperature.
The output dynamic viscosity is given as Pa*s, N*s/m2, cP, mPa*s, lbf*s/ft2 and lbm/(ft*h),
while the kinematic viscosity is given as cSt, m2/s, and ft2/s

Temperature

See also other properties of Methanol at varying temperature and pressure:  Density and specific weight and Specific Heat (Heat Capacity), and Thermophysical properties at standard conditions,
as well as dynamic and kinematic viscosity of air, ammonia, benzene, butanecarbon dioxide, ethane, ethanol, ethylene, methane, nitrogen, oxygen, propane and water.

Dynamic and kinematic viscosity of liquid methanol at varying temperature: 


Methanol viscosity liquid C
Methanol viscosity liquid F

The atmospheric boiling point of methanol is 64.15 °C (147.47 °F), and methanol must therefore be pressurized to be present as liquid above that temperature.
