Unit dam²/h square decametre per hour Kinematic Viscosity Unit dam²/h (square decametre per hour) is a lesser-known unit of measurement for kinematic viscosity. Kinematic viscosity is a property of fluids that represents how easily the fluid flows under gravity or due to external forces. It is a measure of a fluid's resistance to deformation or internal forces that oppose the fluid's motion. In the field of kinematic viscosity, the standard unit of measurement is usually the square millimeter per second (mm²/s) or the square centimeter per second (cm²/s), also known as the "Stokes". However, in some applications, particularly region-specific or industry-specific cases, other units may be applied. The square decametre per hour (dam²/h) is one such unit, where: 1 dam² = 100 meters x 100 meters = 10,000 square meters 1 hour = 3600 seconds So, 1 dam²/h = 10,000 m² / 3600 s = 2.78 m²/s (approximately). To convert a kinematic viscosity value measured in the square decametre per hour (dam²/h) to the more common square millimeter per second (mm²/s): 1 dam²/h * (3600 s/h) * (1 m²/10,000 dam²) * (1000 mm/m)² = 278,000 mm²/s (approximately). In conclusion, the unit square decametre per hour (dam²/h) is a way of expressing kinematic viscosity, which mainly measures a fluid's resistance to flow and deformation. While it is not the most common unit, it can still be used in specific applications and can be converted to other units when needed.
