# Convert Centipoise to Centistokes?

Centipoise and centistokes are equivalent, so no conversion is needed. However, centipoise and centistokes are not equivalent to Saybolt seconds universal. Centipose and centistoke are measurements of viscosity. Viscosity is the measurements of friction on the top of a liquid. There is both dynamic viscosity and kinematic viscosity. Dynamic viscosity is better known as absolute viscosity and is the amount of force required to move planes across each other. There are conversion tables available to convert between centipose and Saybolt seconds universal.

 First, to convert from centistokes to centipoise, you will use the formula cP = cSt*(Specific Gravity). Note: The specific gravity is the ratio of the density of one substance to http://www.ehow.com/how_8279085_convert-centistoke...
 Centipoise divided by specific gravity is equal to centistokes. Centipoise divided by specific gravity is equal to centistokes. Centipoise divided by specific gravity is equal to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_convert_from_...
 1 centiPoise = 0.001 Pascal-second Note that Poise is not an internationally accepted unit. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=200807...
 The centistoke is defined as the centipoise divided by density (or weight per gallon times 0.120). To convert, you must know the density or weight per gallon of the material. For http://www.gardco.com/pages/viscosity/vi/viscosity...
