Question

Fluid A has a dynamic viscosity of 4.54 centipoise and a specific gravity of 1.51. What is the kinematic viscosity of Fluid A in units of​ stokes?

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

The following data is given to us:

Dynamic viscosity, μ = 4.54 cP.

Specific gravity of fluid A, S = 1.51

Step 2

Consider the following unit conversions:

(a) 1 cP 0.01 P
(b) 1 poise 1m
cm s
(c) 1 stoke 1 cm2 /s
