Viscosity: What is it?

The resistance of a substance to motion when a force is applied is measured by its viscosity.

The internal friction degree in a fluid is measured by its viscosity. When a fluid layer is made to move with another layer, this friction becomes visible. The force needed to produce this shearing movement increases as friction increases. Every time the fluid is distributed or physically moved, such as when spraying, spreading, pouring, mixing, etc., shearing happens. Therefore, it takes more force to move highly viscous fluids than it does to move less viscous materials.

In any industrial field using liquid media, understanding viscosity is crucial.
