a unit of dynamic viscosity in the customary English system. See poise for a description of dynamic viscosity. With force measured in pounds of force (lbf), one reyn equals 1 lbf·s/in2, approximately 68.947 57 kilopoise, or 6.894 757 kilopascal second. The unit, pronounced "ren", was named for a British scientist, Osborne Reynolds (1842-1912).
