Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,I don know if my question will be clear,but I will try it.So,I m wondering how was derive this equation:
viscosity=viscosity(known liquid)*density(known from table)*time(liquid will get over one point of Ubelohde viscometer to second point of viscometer(unknown liquid)/density(known liquid)*time(liquid will get over one point of Ubelohde viscometer to second point of viscometer(unknown liquid).
So once again in short form:viscosity*density*time/density*time.
So,I know it is a comparison method,that means density*time/density* time is undimensional and that means,that viscosity=density*time in this case.
And now my question:Why density in this equation?Why not only weight?Or why not to neglect density and count only time?Why is density neccessary here?
Thanks for patient and widespread answer.

In this viscometer design, apparently the viscosity times density times time for flow is a constant.
