Poise-Stokes conversion diagram
This calc converts between kinematic and dynamic (intrinsic) viscosity for a fluid of known density. In general, kinematic voscosity is dynamic viscosity divided by density.

Fill in either the dynamic or the kinematic viscosity, as well as the density of the fluid. The other kind of viscosity will be given in the lower box.
Viscosity conventionally uses unusual units. The Stokes has the units of cm²/s.
