viscosity

(vɪsˈkɒsɪtɪ)
n, pl -ties
1. the state or property of being viscous
2. (General Physics) physics
a. the extent to which a fluid resists a tendency to flow
b. Also called: absolute viscosity a measure of this resistance, equal to the tangential stress on a liquid undergoing streamline flow divided by its velocity gradient. It is measured in newton seconds per metre squared. Symbol: η See also kinematic viscosity, specific viscosity
