Unit MP
Name megapoise
Category Dynamic Viscosity
Details The unit Megapoise (MP) in the field of dynamic viscosity is a measure of a fluid's resistance to flow or deformation under an applied force. It is a part of the centimeter-gram-second (CGS) system of units and is often used to describe the thickness or stickiness of fluids, such as oils, syrups, and gels.

One Megapoise (MP) is equal to 1,000,000 centipoise (cP), which is another common unit of dynamic viscosity. It can also be related to the SI unit of dynamic viscosity, the Pascal-second (Pa·s), where 1 MP is equal to 100 Pa·s.

In simple terms, the higher the Megapoise value, the thicker or more viscous the fluid is, making it harder for it to flow or deform under an external force. The measurement of dynamic viscosity is crucial in the engineering and design of various devices, including lubricants, coatings, and many industrial processes, where the flow behavior of fluids plays a vital role.
