Details | Unit dPa·s (decipascal second) is a measure of dynamic viscosity (also known as absolute viscosity) in the field of fluid mechanics. Dynamic viscosity refers to a fluid's internal resistance to deformation by shearing or tensile stress, and it essentially quantifies how "thick" or "sticky" a fluid is. The unit dPa·s can be broken down into its components: decipascal (dPa) is a unit of pressure, and second (s) is a unit of time. One dPa equals 0.1 pascals (Pa); hence, a viscosity of 1 dPa·s means that a fluid has a viscosity of 0.1 Pa·s or Pascal-seconds. In the context of dynamic viscosity, dPa·s is used to describe how much force (in decipascals) is required to move a fluid layer at a certain velocity relative to another fluid layer 1 meter apart, per unit of time (in seconds). Overall, the unit dPa·s in dynamic viscosity measurements helps communicate and quantify the fluid's resistance to flow or deformation due to shear stress, which is essential in understanding the behavior of fluids in various applications like lubrication, flow through pipes, and product formulation. |
