Dynamic viscosity converter
Calculate with this converting program the units to US/UK units or SI units.
You can see viscosity as the resistance. When the resistance gets higher, the viscosity get greater with it. The unit of dynamic viscosity is the Poiseuille (=Pa·s). When you know the viscosity, you can amongst others calculate the number of Reynolds. With that you know whether the stream is turbulent or not. A turbulent stream is a stream where the velocity of the particles have random directions. When the stream is not turbulent (laminar), the velocity and direction of the particles is always the same. If you know the number of Reynolds, you can calculate the pressure in a pipe line.
