absolute viscosity

[′ab·sə‚lüt vis′käs·ə·dē]
(fluid mechanics)
The tangential force per unit area of two parallel planes at unit distance apart when the space between them is filled with a fluid and one plane moves with unit velocity in its own plane relative to the other. Also known as coefficient of viscosity.

A polymer solution of VP20 exhibits similar behavior to that of VPO or VP10; but, the absolute viscosity value is lower because of the relatively low molecular weight, and diminished polymer solvent interaction.
It reports relative, specific, inherent, reduced, intrinsic and absolute viscosity, as well as molecular weight.
The absolute viscosity ((Eta) abs) for MBPC was in the range of 0.
