Usage: Type the correct density of the substance into the field at the top and the value of viscosity you want to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit. Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the other fields. Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation. Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.
|Dynam. viscosity / fluidity||Pa·s, poise, centipoise, kg m-1 h-1, pdl s ft-2, lb in-1 s-1, ....|
|Kinematic Viscosity||Stoke, m2/h, ft-2/s, ....|
|Tube sizes||Geometry of straight pipes|
Example: What is the kinematic viscosity in cm2s-1 of honey with a dynamic viscosity of 600 Poise and a density of 1.42 g cm-3 ? At first type the value for the density (1.42) into the corresponding field. Then type "600" into the field in front of "dyn s cm-2 = g cm-1 s-1 = P". Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Find your result in the field in front of "cm2 / s = St" (422.54 cm2s-1 or stoke).
The correct density is nessesary for a conversion between dynamic and kinematic viscosity and vice versa. For conversions just between units of dynamic viscosity or kinematic viscosity, special converters exist.
