What is Kinematic Viscosity?

Viscosity is the resistance that a fluid (gas or liquid) has during flow. This resistance or internal friction is caused by the movement of one layer of fluid in relation to another. Therefore, a liquid such as honey, which is highly resistant to movement, has a high viscosity, unlike water that flows easily, thus having a much lower viscosity.

How to Calculate Kinematic Viscosity

The Amount of Matter is calculated by the following expression:

The kinematic viscosity (Greek letter ni, ν) is the relationship between the dynamic viscosity by density, is defined by:

v = μ / ρ

Please note:

ρ = specific mass of the fluid
μ = dynamic viscosity

The International System of Units (SI) uses m²/s to represent kinematic viscosity, however, we can also use centiStokes to represent this measure.
