Unit TP
Name terapoise
Category Dynamic Viscosity
Details Terapoise (TP) is a unit of dynamic viscosity, which is a measure of a fluid's resistance to shear or flow when a force is applied. One terapoise is equivalent to 1 x 10^12 poise, where poise is a commonly used unit of dynamic viscosity in the International System of Units (SI).

In the field of dynamic viscosity, understanding the resistance of fluids to flow is essential for numerous applications such as the fluid's behavior in pipes, lubrication, and understanding the performance of industrial processes involving liquids. The unit of terapoise can be used to describe extremely high viscosity fluids in fields where large-scale fluid dynamics are encountered, like the flow of highly viscous substances such as bitumen, asphalt, or lava. However, it is important to note that terapoise is a non-SI unit, and the preferred unit for viscosity in the SI system is the pascal-second (Pa·s).
