Unit nP
Name nanopoise
Category Dynamic Viscosity
Details In the field of dynamic viscosity, a unit nP (nanopoise) represents a tiny measurement of a fluid's resistance to flow. A nanopoise is one-billionth of a poise (1 nP = 10^-9 P), where poise is a common unit to express dynamic viscosity. Dynamic viscosity is a crucial property of fluid for understanding how it behaves under various conditions, like temperature and stress.

A fluid's viscosity is defined as its resistance to deformation by shear stress or tensile stress. Higher viscosity fluids have more resistance to flow or deformation, while lower viscosity fluids flow more easily. The nanopoise is useful when dealing with fluids at the nano scale or dealing with fluids with a very low dynamic viscosity. It is commonly used in scientific research, particularly in the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, and materials science.
