p. The viscosity of a liquid in which a force of 1 dyne (a unit of measurement of small amounts of force) exerted tangentially on a surface of 1 cm of either of two parallel planes 1 cm apart will move one plane at the rate of 1 cm per second in reference to the other plane with the space between the two planes filled with the liquid.

Unit of fluid viscosity in fire retardant, defined as tangential force per unit area (dynes/square centimeter) required to maintain unit difference in velocity (1 centimeter/second) between two parallel planes separated by 1 cm of fluid (1 poise=l dyne-second/cubic centimeter).

a cgs unit of dynamic viscosity equal to one dyne-second per square centimeter; the viscosity of a fluid in which a force of one dyne per square centimeter maintains a velocity of 1 centimeter per second

Unit of viscosity, defined by the shear stress required to move one layer of fluid along another over a total thickness of one centimeter at a velocity of one centimeter per second. This viscosity is independent of fluid density, and directly related to flow resistance.

The standard unit for the viscosity of a fluid.

A cgs absolute unit of viscosity that is equal to one dyne-second per square centimeter.

A unit of measurement for viscosity, a 100 centipoise = 1 poise; (dyne-sec/cm2);

a unit of measurement for viscosity; abbreviated as P.

The unit of absolute viscosity. The trade often uses centipoises. One poise equals 100 centipoises.

A metric unit for measuring absolute viscosity. One poise equals one dynesecond per square centimeter, or one gram per centimeter second.

A measure of viscosity numerically equal to the force required to move a plane surface of one square centimeter per second when the surfaces are separated by a layer of fluid one centimeter in thickness. It is the ratio of the shearing stress to the shear rate of a fluid and is expressed in dyne seconds per square centimeter (DYNE SEC/CM2); 1 centipoise equals .01 poise.

Fundamental and absolute unit of viscosity measurement. A substance is said to have a viscosity of 1 poise when a force of 1 dyne is required to move a surface of 1 cm².

The cgs unit of viscosity. Example: A polysulfide highway joint sealant might have a viscosity of 500 poises, at 77°F. Higher numbers indicate a more viscous material.

The Bureau of Standards unit for measuring viscosity.

This is the absolute unit of viscosity. For example, a material has a viscosity of one poise when a force of one dyne is required to move a surface film of one square centimeter at the rate of one centimeter per second when that surface is separated from a parallel Opacity-Poise Solvents Council Page 17 Technical Dictionary for Coatings surface by a film one centimeter in thickness.

The unit of viscosity, expressed as one dyne per second per square centimeter.

(absolute viscosity) -- a unit of viscosity equal to the viscosity of a fluid that would require a shearing force of one dyne to move a square-centimeter area of either of two parallel layers of fluid one centimeter apart, with a velocity of one centimeter per second relative to the other layer, with the space between the layers being filled with the fluid in question. It is the ratio of the shear stress to the shear rate of a fluid, expressed in dyne seconds per square centimeter. 1 centipoise equals .01 poise.

The unit of viscosity in the centimeter-gram-second system, one gm cmâˆ’1sâˆ’1, named in honor of Poiseuille.

The poise (P; ) is the unit of dynamic viscosity in the centimetre gram second system of units. It is named after Jean Louis Marie Poiseuille.
