cen·ti·poise

(sen'ti-poyz),
One hundredth of a poise.

centipoise

[sen′təpois]
Etymology: Jean L.M. Poiseuille, French physiologist, 1797-1869
a measure of the viscosity of a liquid, equal to one hundredth of a poise. The viscosity of glycerin is 1490 centipoise, compared with 1.005 centipoise for water.
