## What is Krebs unit?

A Krebs unit is the weight in grams that will turn a paddle-type rotor, submerged in the sample, 100 revolutions in 30 s.

**What are the units for centipoise?**

A unit of measurement for viscosity equivalent to one-hundredth of a poise and symbolized by cP. Viscosity is the ratio of shear stress to shear rate, giving the traditional unit of dyn-s/cm2 for Poise. In metric (SI) units, one cP is one millipascal-second (mPa.

**How do you convert to centipoise?**

Centipoise (cP), dynamic viscosity The poise is often used with the metric prefix centi-. A centipoise is one millipascal-second (mPa·s) in SI units. (1 cP = 10-2P = 10-3 Pa·s) Centipoise is properly abbreviated cP, but the alternate abbreviations cps and cPs are also commonly seen.

### What is KU unit viscosity?

The viscosity is reported in Krebs units (KU), which are unique to Stormer viscometers. Vibrating viscometers can also be used to measure viscosity. Resonant, or vibrational viscometers work by creating shear waves within the liquid.

**How does a stormer viscometer work?**

The stormer viscometer measures the viscosity of a fluid by measuring the time taken for an inner cylinder in the mechanism to perform a fixed number of revolutions in response to an actuating weight.

**What does CPS mean in viscosity?**

Viscosity is the measurement of a fluids internal resistance to flow. It is usually represented in centipoise (cps) or poise (100 Centipose = 1 poise).

#### Is cP the same as CPS?

A unit of measure of dynamic viscosity in the centimeter-gram-second system of units equal to one one-hundredth of a poise (1 P = 100 cP = 1 g x cm-1 x s-1). (The viscosity of water at 70 F is 1 centipoise. The lower the number, the less viscous the material.)

**What is KU measurement?**

A kilo unit is one thousand units. It is written kU/L. Some medical tests are reported using this standard international unit (SI unit).
