The S.I unit of viscosity is:

The SI unit of viscosity is Nm-2s.

What is viscosity

Viscosity is an important property of fluid foods. It is defined as the internal friction of a liquid or its ability to resist flow. Viscosity is also a characteristic of the texture of food. Viscosity is a measure of a fluids’ propensity to flow. There are two kinds of viscosity. They are kinematic and dynamic.

  • Dynamic viscosity is the relationship between shear stress and the shear rate in a fluid.
  • Kinematic viscosity is the relationship between viscous and inertial forces in a fluid.
