Full name: decipoise
Plural form: decipoise
Category type: dynamic viscosity
Scale factor: 0.01
The SI derived unit for dynamic viscosity is the pascal second.
1 pascal second is equal to 100 decipoise.
Valid units must be of the dynamic viscosity type.
You can use this form to select from known units:

The SI prefix "deci" represents a factor of 10-1, or in exponential notation, 1E-1.
So 1 decipoise = 10-1 poise.
The definition of a poise is as follows:
The poise is a unit of dynamic viscosity in the CGS system of units. It is named after Jean Louis Marie Poiseuille. The analogous SI unit is the Pascal second. Water has a viscosity of 0.0089 poise at 25 °C, or 1 centipoise at 20 °C.
