Kinematic Viscosity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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

\(\large{ \nu = \frac {\mu} {\rho}  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \nu }\)  (Greek symbol nu) = kinematic viscosity

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = density

\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = dynamic viscosity
