Formula of viscosity

  1. Feb 24, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    why the alternative formula of viscosity not = (mass x length ) / ( time x area) ???

    for force x time , we would get (mass x length ) / time .....

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You are asking about the units of viscosity, but, at least to me, your question does not make sense. What exactly are you asking?

    i dont agree with the formula mass/ (length x area)

    i think it is wrong

    The units should be mass/(length x time)
