Enter the Centipoise and specific gravity into the calculator to determine the Centistokes. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Centipoise To Centistokes Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from Centipoise to Centistokes.

CS = CP / SG


  • CS is the Centistokes (cSt) CP is the Centipoise (cP) SG is the specific gravity (dimensionless)

To calculate the Centistokes, divide the Centipoise by the specific gravity.

What is a Centipoise To Centistokes?

Centipoise and Centistokes are units of measurement for viscosity, which is the measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow. The conversion from Centipoise to Centistokes involves the fluid’s specific gravity. Specifically, Centistokes equals Centipoise divided by the specific gravity of the fluid at a certain temperature. This conversion is important in various industries such as engineering and chemistry where understanding the flow characteristics of a fluid is crucial.
