Oil Viscosity - Convert Values

Convert between common oil viscosity units

Convert between commonly used oil kinematic viscosity units:

centiStoke 0.01 SG SG 1.45 10-7 SG 0.01 1

SG  = specific gravity of the oil

1 Stoke = 100 mm2/second

Example - Convert Viscosity in Stokes to centiStoke

Oil with kinematic viscosity 0.1 Stoke (10 mm2/s) equals to

0.1 Stoke (100 centiStoke/Stoke) = 10 centiStokes
