absolute viscosity

Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Legal, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

ab·so·lute vis·cos·i·ty

force per unit area applied tangentially to a fluid, causing unit rate of displacement of parallel planes separated by a unit distance; units of measure in the centimeter-gram-second (or CGS) system are termed poises.

Therefore, the effects of polydispersity and LCB on the shape of the complex viscosity curve as well as on the Newtonian viscosity are similar, It can also be concluded that these effects are the same on the absolute viscosity curve in view of the validity of the Cox-Merz rule.
