Units of Kinematic Viscosity
Kinematic viscosity has the dimension length squared per time. The SI composite unit of kinematic viscosity is the square meter per second.
Maple knows the units of kinematic viscosity listed in the following table.
An asterisk ( * ) indicates the default context, an at sign (@) indicates an abbreviation, and under the prefixes column, SI indicates that the unit takes all SI prefixes, IEC indicates that the unit takes IEC prefixes, and SI+ and SI- indicate that the unit takes only positive and negative SI prefixes, respectively. Refer to a unit in the Units package by indexing the name or symbol with the context, for example, stokes[standard] or St[standard]; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, stokes or St.
The unit of kinematic viscosity is defined as follows.
A stokes is defined as a centimeter squared per second.
