# dynamic viscosity of water (as a function of temperature temperature)

## Description

The viscosity of a fluid is the measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress. For liquids, it corresponds to the informal concept of “thickness”: for example, honey has a higher viscosity than water.

The dynamic viscosity of water is 8.90×10−4 Pa·s or as a function of temperature as shown here.

The dynamic viscosity of liquid water at different temperatures up to the normal boiling point.
