Fluid viscosity is an important property in the analysis of liquid behavior and fluid motion near solid boundaries.

The viscosity is fluid resistance to shear or flow and is a measure of the adhesive (cohesive) or frictional properties of a fluid. The resistance is caused by inter-molecular friction exerted when layers of fluids attempts to slide by an other.

### A Dynamic or Absolute Viscosity Units Converting Table

The table below can be used to convert between common dynamic or absolute viscosity units.

### Example - Converting Dynamic Viscosity from *centipoise* to *lb/ft s*

From the table above - to convert from *centipoise* *(cP)* to *lb/ft s* - *centipoise* must be multiplied with *0.000672*.

*10 centipoise* can then be converted like

*(10 centipoise) 0.000672 = 0.00672 lb/ft s*
