# Oil Viscosity Converter

Convert between commonly used oil kinematic viscosity units :

 Convert from Multiply with Convert to Poise (P) centiPoise (cP) Reyn Stoke (cm2/sec) centiStoke Poise (P) 1 100 1.45 10 -5 1 / SG 100 / SG centiPoise (cP) 0.01 1 1.45 10 -7 0.01 / SG 1 / SG Reyn 6.9 104 6.9 106 1 6.9 104 / SG 6.9 106 / SG Stoke (cm2/sec) SG 100 SG 1.45 10 -5 SG 1 100 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
