Correct Answer - Option 2 : 6 × 10-4 m2/s

Concept:

Kinematic viscosity: It is defined as the ratio between the dynamic or absolute viscosity and density of the fluid, $\nu = \frac{\mu }{\rho }$

Units of Kinematic viscosity:

The SI unit of kinematic viscosity is m2/s and the C.G.S. unit of kinematic viscosity is cm2/s or stokes.

1 stoke = 10-4 m2/s.

Calculation:
Given:

Kinematic viscosity = 6 stokes

1 stoke = 10-4 m2/s

6 stokes = 6 × 10-4 m2/s
