Convert Pound force second per square foot [lbf·s/ft²] to...
|Pound force second per square foot|
|Unit of||dynamic viscosity|
|1 lbf·s·ft-2 in ...||... is equal to ...|
|SI units||47.88 Pa·s
|Imperial/US unit(s)||32.17 lb·ft-1·s-1
|Other unit(s)||1 slug·ft-1·s-1
I want to convert: using
|Pascal second [Pa·s]|
|Kilogram per metre per second [kg/(m·s)]|
|Gram per centimetre per second [g/(cm·s)]|
|Newton second per square metre [N·s/m²]|
|Dyne second per square centimetre [dyne·s/cm²]|
The cgs physical unit for dynamic viscosity, the poise (P), is also named after Jean Poiseuille. It is more commonly expressed, particularly in ASTM standards, as centipoise (cP) since the latter is equal to the SI multiple millipascal seconds (mPa·s).
For example, water at 20 °C has a dynamic viscosity of 1.002 mPa·s = 1.002 cP.
