Water - Absolute (Dynamic) Viscosity vs. Temperature and Pressure

Absolute viscosity for water in centipoises for temperatures between 32 - 200oF.

Absolute or dynamic viscosity is used to calculate Reynolds Number to determine if a fluid flow is laminar, transient or turbulent.

The absolute or dynamic viscosity of water depends on the temperature as indicated below:
