As usual when we pose a question, like:

Should you use Coulometric or Volumetric Karl Fischer to measure moisture in your product?

We often get a the reaction, “So Who Cares?” We'll try to answer both questions.

What is the Difference Between Dynamic and Kinematic Viscosity?

Posted by Hank Levi on Jan 26, 2024 1:55:33 PM

At first glance, viscosity seems like a fairly simple concept. It helps describe how thick a product is, or how well it flows. That's all, right?

In reality, there are several different terms that come under the heading of viscosity. These terms are derived from how the viscosity is measured. When people talk about viscosity, they are talking about one of two things: kinematic viscosity or dynamic viscosity.

It's not easy to find a lot of information on the differences between dynamic and kinematic viscosity. This is my attempt to bring clarity to these two principal concepts.
