Explanation:
Καλησπέρα Μπέτυ.

Είναι μονάδα ιξώδους 1 poise = 0.01 poise

(Το ιξώδες του νερού είναι 1 centipoise)

Dynamic, Absolute and Kinematic Viscosity
An introduction to dynamic, absolute and kinematic viscosity and how to convert between CentiStokes (cSt), CentiPoises (cP), Saybolt Universal Seconds (SSU) and degree Engler
The viscosity of a fluid is a very important property in the analysis of liquid behavior and fluid motion near a solid boundary.

The viscosity of a fluid is its resistance to shear or flow and is a measure of the fluids adhesive/cohesive or frictional properties. The resistance is caused by intermolecular friction exerted when layers of fluids attempts to slide by an other.

The knowledge of viscosity is often necessary for proper design of required temperatures for storage, pumping or injection of fluids.

Common used units for viscosity:

CentiPoises (cp) = CentiStokes (cSt) x Density
SSU1 = Centistokes (cSt) * 4.55
Degree Engler1 * 7.45 = Centistokes (cSt)
Seconds Redwood1 - 4.05 = Centistokes (cSt)

Explanation:
poise, (pwaaz), n : A centimetre-gram-second unit of dynamic viscosity equal to one dyne-second per square centimetre. [French, after Jean Louis Marie Poiseuille (1799-1869),French pysician.]
