Viscosity of Air, Dynamic and Kinematic

  • Specific Heat of Air
  • Density of Air
  • Specific Heat of Air
  • Thermal Conductivity of Air
  • Thermal Diffusivity of Air
  • Dynamic Viscosity of Air
  • Kinematic Viscosity of Air
  • Prandtl Number Air

The viscosity of air depends mostly on the temperature. At 15 °C, the viscosity of air is 1.81 × 10-5 kg/(m·s) , 18.1 μPa·s or 1.81 × 10-5 Pa·s .

The kinematic viscosity of air at 15 °C is 1.48 × 10-5 m2 /s or 14.8 cSt. At 25 °C, the viscosity is 18.6 μPa·s and the kinematic viscosity 15.7 cSt.
