# How do you convert kinematics to dynamic viscosity?

## How do you convert kinematics to dynamic viscosity?

Density actually provides a way to convert between a kinematic and a dynamic viscosity measurement. The formula for the conversion is: Kinematic (cSt) x Density = Dynamic (cP)

## How do you convert cSt to SSU?

Example: Converting Centistokes to SSU Viscosity Calculate 4ac = 4 × 0.226 × -195 = -176.28. Calculate 2a = 2 × 0.226 = 0.452. Calculate SQRT(b2 -4ac) = √1076.28 = 32.81. Calculate SSU viscosity t = [-b + SQRT(b2 -4ac)] / [2a] = 138.9 seconds.

**How do you calculate dynamic viscosity?**

Dynamic viscosity (sometimes referred to as Absolute viscosity) is obtained by dividing the Shear stress by the rate of shear strain.

**What is the relation between dynamic viscosity and kinematic viscosity?**

Kinematic viscosity is expressed as the ratio of fluid dynamic viscosity to its density. The unit of measurement is m2s-1. Any two different fluids can have the same dynamic viscosity but will never have the same kinematic viscosity because of the density difference.

### Is dynamic and kinematic viscosity the same?

Kinematic viscosity incorporates fluid density as part of its measurement. Thus, dynamic viscosity is a measure of force, while kinematic viscosity is a measure of velocity. That’s the difference. If you divide kinematic viscosity by the fluid density, you get absolute viscosity.

### How do you convert poise to centipoise?

Please provide values below to convert poise [P] to centipoise [cP], or vice versa….Poise to Centipoise Conversion Table.

Poise [P] | Centipoise [cP] |
---|---|

0.01 P | 1 cP |

0.1 P | 10 cP |

1 P | 100 cP |

2 P | 200 cP |

**What is SSU viscosity unit?**

SSU viscosity means the number of seconds it takes 60 cubic centimeters of an oil to flow through the standard orifice of a Saybolt Universal viscometer at 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

**How do I convert cPs to Mpas?**

A centipoise is one millipascal-second (mPa·s) in SI units. (1 cP = 10-2P = 10-3 Pa·s) Centipoise is properly abbreviated cP, but the alternate abbreviations cps and cPs are also commonly seen.
