Units of Kinematic Viscosity

Description

 • 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.

 Name Symbols Context Alternate Spellings Prefixes stokes St standard * SI

 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.
