# What Is Viscous Fluid?

Fluids that have higher viscosity are known as viscous fluid. Examples of viscous fluids are honey and ketchup. The fluid that has more flow resistance is referred to as viscous fluid. Viscosity is a fluid factor, which is the degree of the amount of resistance between the fluid layers.

### What is viscosity?

Viscosity is one of the properties of the fluid and is defined as the resistance offered by the layers of the fluid to the fluid movement. Viscosity is defined as the measure of the resistance of a fluid to gradual deformation by shear or tensile stress.
