What's the difference of cps and cst?

Found this in another forum, not mine and have not double checked it, could be wrong 😅:

"CST is for kinematic viscosity and CPS is for dynamic viscosity.

The calculation to convert between them is

Kinematic * specific gravity = dynamic

The specific gravity of silicone oil is ~0.97 approximately which means the difference is very small.

Eg 100CST=97CPS so basically they're interchangeable for silicone oil.
