## Measurement unit: millipoise

**Full name:** millipoise

**Plural form:** millipoise

**Symbol:** mP

**Category type:** dynamic viscosity

**Scale factor:** 0.0001

## SI unit: pascal second

The SI derived unit for dynamic viscosity is the pascal second.

1 pascal second is equal to 10000 millipoise.

Valid units must be of the **dynamic viscosity** type.

You can use this form to select from known units:

## Definition: Millipoise

The SI prefix "milli" represents a factor of
10^{-3}, or in exponential notation, 1E-3.

So 1 millipoise = 10^{-3} 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.
