What Does Viscosity Mean?

Answer

Viscosity is the ratio of the magnitude of an applied shear stress to the velocity gradient that it produces. In other words, viscosity is the molecular friction within a fluid that produces flow resistance. Higher viscosity means thicker, lower viscosity means more free-flowing.
