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
- The study of fluids - liquids and gases. Involving velocity, pressure, density and temperature as functions of space and time.
- Viscosities of products and chemical species at varying conditions.
- Viscosity at 20°C/68°F and 50°C/122°F for more than 120 crudes is shown as function of specific gravity@15°C/60°F.
- Oil viscosity vs. temperature.
- Convert between kinematic viscosity units like centistokes, poise, lentor and more.
- Recommended max. flow velocities on the delivery side when pumping light oils.
- Recommended max. suction flow velocities when pumping light oils.
- Specific gravities of liquids like alcohol, oils, benzene, water and many more.
- Viscosities and densities of SAE Grade oils.
- Convert between units with the unit factor or factor-label method
- Vicosity is a fluid's resistance to flow and can be valued as dynamic (absolute) or kinematic.
