  • About the Edition

    This unique and detailed guide gives accurate metric equivalents and conversion factors for more than 10,000 scientific units as well as detailed descriptions of over 2,000. It covers the full range of science, technology and medicine and deals with US customary, British, conventional metric, historic systems and SI units. One section allows a search by application area while another details mathematical and physical constants. Appendices contain lists of national and international standardization organizations and there is also an English-French lexicon of terms. A detailed bibliography completes this comprehensive guide. The pocket book format has been chosen for its compact size whilst the structure of the book is intended to make it as accessible as possible. Full use is made of easily referenced conversion charts and tables. Scientific Unit Conversion will be invaluabl e for working scientists, students and libraries.

    Many calculations that you make in chemistry will involve unit conversions (for example, between meters and millimeters, or between meters and inches). Fortunately, you don’t need to know all possible unit conversions. Instead of memorizing or looking up conversion factors between all types of units, you can memorize just a handful of conversion factors and [ ]. Online Volume Conversion: converts between metric, English, scientific volume & capacity units including cubic meter (m^3), gallon (gal), pint (pt), etc.. Calculator Input the quantity you would like to convert in the first input box, select the units to convert, and the result will appear in the second input box immediately.

    7 Unit Lists: Conversion to Sums of Units. Outside of the SI, it is sometimes desirable to convert a single unit to a sum of units—for example, feet to feet plus inches. The conversion from sums of units was described in Sums and Differences of Units, and is a simple matter of adding the units with the ‘+’ sign. This is a list of funny, made-up scientific unit conversions. If you need help with real unit conversions, check out our collection of printable conversion worksheets and examples of worked unit conversion problems.

1 nm = m and nm = 1 m Because we want our conversion factors to have positive exponents, we will build ourFile Size: 1MB. Dimensional analysis uses three fundamental facts: (1) A conversion factor is a statement of the equal relationship between two units; (2) Multiplying by a conversion factor in the form of a ratio is multiplying by 1, since the two parts of the ratio equal each other; (3) Units "cancel" when you divide a unit by itself.

A unit is the frequently arbitrary designation we have given to something to convey a definite magnitude of a physical quantity and every quantity can be expressed in terms of the seven base units.

This is a list of scientific units named after people. For other lists of eponyms (names derived from people) see eponym. Note that by convention, the name of the unit is properly written in all-lowercase, but its abbreviation is capitalized.

The process of conversion depends on the specific situation and the intended purpose. This may be governed by regulation, contract, technical specifications or other published standards.
