Viscosity is a measure of a fluids resistance to flow. Is is a measure of how 'thick' a liquid is. For example, oil has a greater viscosity than water.

Viscosity is the measure of a fluids resistance to flow. The higher the viscosity the more viscous (the more resistance it has to flow); honey is generally much more viscous than water.

Viscosity is the measure of a fluids ability to flow, it is measured in pascal-seconds(this link might help)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viscosity#Units

Viscosity is the measure of the shear stress vs the shear strain of the fluid (in one tensorial direction). It is a derived property of fluids and cannot be directly linked to fluid parameters. There are typically two ways to measure fluid viscosity, test it in simple shear flow, and test it in elongation. Both tests will yield a fluids viscosity, although the results may be different. Definition- the state of being thick, sticky, and semifluid in consistency, due to internal friction. Let it be noted that 'viscosity' is only a term applied to newtonian fluids, because in fact some fluids do not have constant viscosity. This becomes very apparent when attempting to use the Navier Stokes equations on non-newtonian fluids. The 'viscous' closure term falls apart for these fluids. This is once again due to the fact that when you measure the 'viscosity' of a fluid, you are only measure one direction in the stress tensor, which for these fluids is not equal for all directions (seen in cases such as die swell). *See rheology for more information about this topic

Shear rate and viscosity are related to each other. According to shear rate and viscosity we can classifying the materials especially paints. Fluids are divided into two types like 1.NEWNONION FLUIDS and 2.NON NWETONINON FLUIDS based on shear rate and viscosity. In fluids if there no change in viscosity with respective shear rate, such type fluids are known as nwetonion fluids. Viscosity changes with respective shear rate such type of fluids are known as non nwetonion fluids.

Viscosity is a property of fluids describing their internal resistance to flow and may be thought of as a measure of fluid friction.See the related link for more information.

Viscosity is the resistance for flow.Viscosity is the internal properties of fluids.Gear oil normally has larger viscosity.Kinematic viscosity is usuarally used to measure the viscosity of industrial lubricants.Dynamical viscosity (CCS) is usually used to measure low temperature viscosity for auto lubricants.Solvent or fuels has a low viscosity.Industrial oils folllow ISO viscosity classification.Auto lubes oils follow SAE viscosity classification.High viscosity usually means better protection for wear.Low viscosity usually means low friction resistance.

Effective Viscosity for Non-newtonian fluids is usally defined to calculated for pressure losses. See Bingham or Power law fluids characteristics.

Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid which is being deformed by either shear or tensile stress. In everyday terms (and for fluids only), viscosity is "thickness" or "internal friction". Thus, water with low viscosity can be easily poured out or has ease fluidity or movement of molecules.

Viscosity is a fluids resistance to flow. A high viscosity fluid would be thick, a low viscosity fluid would be thin.

Viscosity is a transport property of fluids. It is a scalar quantity.

Certain fluids, especially liquids, do exert internal friction. This property of the fluid is called viscosity. Rheology is known as the study of viscosity.

Viscosity is the measure of friction between adjacent layers of materials.

Viscosity is resistance to flow of oil Viscosity Index is a scale to measure viscosity

Viscosity doesn't happen. Viscosity is a measure of how easily a liquid flows.

Some fluids are more denser than other fluids. For example, shampoo is more denser than Ketchup or oil or water. Therefore, it has a higher viscosity! The thick/denser/sticker a fluid is the higher the concentrtation of viscosity. Here is a range of some fluids put from high viscosity to low concentration of viscosity: 1: Shampoo 2: Ketchup 3: Corn oil 4: Water Water has a really low concentration of viscosity.

The most common method of classifying fluids are through a measure of viscosity; how close to being soilid. Peanut butter would have a very high viscosity, where gasoline or water are very low. Fluids can also have different densities; adding bubbles to water can change the density of the fluid, sometimes leading to the sinking of sea vessels due to a drop in buoyant force.

lots of ones like; Tar, Bitumen... these are fluids that are low on the fractional distillation tank....

Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid which is being deformed by either shear stress or tensile stress. In everyday terms (and for fluids only), viscosity is "thickness" or "internal friction". Thus, water is "thin", having a lower viscosity, while honey is "thick", having a higher viscosity. Put simply, the less viscous the fluid is, the greater its ease of movement (fluidity).

It is the measure of fluid resistance to flow. A fluid with more viscosity flows slowly and with less viscosity flows easily.
