Note: poise (P) is a unit of dynamic viscosity (g cm^{-1} s^{-1}) which in the above table is divided by density (lb ft^{-3}). The use of such mixed units is certainly not recommended.

Kinematic Viscosity

Definition:
Dynamic viscosity divided by the density of the liquid; this gives a quantity which depends only on the type of the liquid, independent of its concentration or density. The quotient has units length squared divided by time.

To use the measurement conversion calculators simply enter a number value into the desired field and click calculate. All results shown will be equivalent values. Values are given to seven significant figures ( the odd result may show 9's or 0's over running). Values of 10 000 or greater will be displayed in the e-format e.g. 2.3456e7 which equals 2.3456 x 10^{7} or 23 456 000. Values lower than 0.001 will be displayed in the e-format e.g. 2.3456e-5 which equals 2.3456 x 10^{-5} or 0.000 023456. The calculators require that your browser has java script enabled.
