›› Definition: Decipoise

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.
