Kinematic Viscosity

Kinematic Viscosity

Kinematic viscosity ( \(\nu\) ) is the ratio of dynamic viscosity to density or the resistive flow of a fluid under the influance of gravity.             

Kinematic Viscosity Formula

\(\nu = \frac {\mu} {\rho}\)          \( kinematic \; viscosity  \;=\;   \frac { dynamic \; viscosity } { density }\)

Where:

\(\nu\) (Greek symbol nu) = kinematic viscosity

\(\mu\) (Greek symbol mu) = dynamic viscosity

\(\rho\) (Greek symbol rho) = density
