Glossary » Units » Kinematic Viscosity » Centistokes
Centistokes (cSt) is a unit in the category of Kinematic viscosity. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Centistokes (cSt) has a dimension of L2T-1 where L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit m2/s by multiplying its value by a factor of 1E-006.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q
(Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Kinematic viscosity include Square Centimeter Per Second (cm2/s), Square Foot Per Hour (ft2/h), Square Foot Per Second (ft2/s), Square Inch Per Hour (in2/h), Square Inch Per Second (in2/s), Square Meter Per Hour (m2/h), Square Meter Per Second (m2/s), and Stokes (St).
