**Poise**

**Poise (P, Po)**is a unit in the category of

*Dynamic viscosity*. It is also known as poises. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Poise (P, Po) has a dimension of ML

^{-1}T

^{-1}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Pa-s by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.1.

Other units in the category of Dynamic viscosity include Centipoise (cP, cPo), Dyne Second Per Square Centimeter (dyn-s/cm^{2}), Gram Force Second Per Square Centimeter (gf-s/cm^{2}), Gram Per Centimeter Per Second (g/cm-s), Kilogram Force Second Per Square Meter (kgf-s/m^{2}), Kilogram Per Meter Per Second (kg/m-s), Newton Second Per Square Meter (N-s/m^{2}), Pascal Second (Pa-s), Poiseuille, Pound Force Second Per Square Foot (lbf-s/ft^{2}), Pound Mass Per Foot Second (lbm/ft-s), Pound Mass Per Inch Second (lbm/in-s), Reynolds (reyns) (reyns (reyn)), Slug Per Foot Second (slug/ft-s), and Slug Per Inch Second (slug/in-s).
