Hey guys, I was looking for a conversion chart that satisfied my needs and didn't find one that worked. So...I jut made one. With this I've eliminated a lot of the algebra involved in converting. Some numbers are rounded very slightly. I hope this helps everyone.


Conversion Chart


ML

1ml = 1cc
5ml = 1tsp
15ml = 1tbs
30ml = 1oz
237ml = 1cup
1,000ml = 1L

Tsp

3tsp = 1tbsp
6tsp = 1oz
48 tsp = 1 Cup

Tbs

2tbs = 1oz
16tbs = 1 Cup

Cups, Quarts, and Gallons

2cup = 1pt
2pt = 1q
4q = 1gal

Liter Conversions

4.2cups = 1L
1.1q = 1L
1gal = 3.8L


Fahrenheit to Celsius Equation


C = (F -32) x 5/9

F = (9/5 x C) + 32

* Where F= Degrees in Fahrenheit

All looks good, but your temp calcs are of no use to me at all, because I have no idea what to do with 5/9 or 9/5 (are you telling me to divide these numbers...?) Other than that, great conversion chart. Thanks

Hoaken, The formula for C from F is F-32, that number mutliplied by the fraction 5/9 or the decimal 0.5555 with repeating 5s as far as you want to carry it. For example 80F -32 = 48, then multiply 48 by .55 giving 26.4 C, so 80F = 26.4C The formula from C to F is C x 9/5 (or 1.8 decimal ) plus 32. Fore example to change 30C to F you would take 30 times 1.8 = 54 then add 32 which gives 86 F, so 30C = 86F. The symbol upper case X means multiply.

Thanks, Don, for taking the time to explain these two formulas to me.
(F - 32) x .55 = C
(C x 1.8) + 32 = F

Hoak [ what little I remember of algabra, formulas could be shown: (F - 32).55 =C The parts of the equation enclosed in parenthesis are worked first, and the multipication sign need not be shown; it presumes the sub to be multiplied by # ]

FYI: Google's search engine has a calculator built-in that will also convert anything you can think of:

http://www.google.co...&q=1oz in grams (always good to know ;-)
or
http://www.google.co... roman numerals :-D
or
http://www.google.co...utes in parsecs (approx distance to the sun)
or
http://www.google.co...ains in troy oz (really, who cares?)

Thank's khoaken , remembering that's a US gallon at 3.8 Litre an imperial gallon is eight pint's @ 4.5 Litres , a pint is 568 ml .
3 foot is roughly a meter , 4 foot roughly 1.2M

Thank you for the posts, it's good to see that this thread is becoming even more helpful. Being from the states it never occurred to me to post that up, and the calculators are cool. I wish we would go over to the metric system already.

It's all metric over here and has been since we joined the EU with the exception of beer in pub's , All other goods are required by law to be sold in metric units although old quantities are retained for some goods like butter, which is sold in 454-gram (1 lb) packaging . The speed limit on a motorway is 120 which sound's fast but is only 75 mph . Having used both metric and imperial mesurement's i prefer metric but still give my height and weight in imperial .. I find imperial get's confusing when dividing up an inch , half's and quarter's are fine but take it to 64 division's and it all get's a bit silly , where 1cm or 10 mm is 0.393 of an inch or 3/64 is 1.19 mm .. Everything in ten's is easier to understand . If you measure the circumferance in mm and divide by PYE 3.14 you get the diameter , same as multiply the diameter by PYE to get the circumferance

Sorry i should have said the the circumference of a circle be it a hole or duct . For working out the inside or outside diameter or how long a ducting band or cable tie should be to fasten or whot size of hole to make if you know the circumference .
An example a 150mm or 6 inch duct
150 x PYE 3.14 = 471 mm or 18.5 inch remember this only work's with metric . Like said this work's both way's division or multiply by PYE
Thank's and sorry for confusion .

I was researching a Irish whiskey and came across an old newspaper ad that described the whiskey as "25 degrees under proof". These days we define alcoholic strength in terms of percentage alcohol by volume (ABV). So I wondered how to convert the older measure to its modern equivalent. The term proof goes back a few hundred years, originating, so the story goes, with sailors suspicious that their grog ration had been watered down. To "prove" the strength of the spirit, a dish of gunpowder was doused in the alcohol and set alight. If the gunpowder took fire, the spirit was over proof. If it did not the spirit was under proof. Since this is not terribly scientific, parliament subsequently laid down that thirteen volumes of proof spirit is equal to the weight of twelve volumes of water, all measurements being made at 51F. The strength of all mixtures of alcohol and water could then be defined relative to this fixed point. They would be described as some number under or over proof, that number describing how many volumes of water should be added to or subtracted from a hundred volumes of the mixture to produce proof spirit. Ten over proof, for example, means that ten volumes of water should be added to a hundred volumes of the spirit to make it proof. Of course proof is defined differently in the United States. There, proof number is twice the percentage of the alcohol content measured by volume at a temperature of 60F. To go from US proof number to %ABV is very easy: just divide by two. According to Merriam-Webster's Guide to Everyday Math, we can convert American proof to British proof by multiplying by 7/8. All of which is a roundabout way of arriving at a simple formula to convert 25 degrees under proof to %ABV. We can express 25 degrees under proof as 75 proof. Convert to American proof by multiplying by 8, then dividing by 7. Then divide by 2 to get %ABV. Or just multiply by 4/7 to get there directly. 25 under proof is the equivalent of just under 43% ABV. Another way of specifying the amount of alcohol is alcoholic proof , which in the United States is twice the alcohol-by-volume number while in the United Kingdom it was 1.75 times the number (expressed as a percentage). For example, 40% ABV is 80 proof in the US and 70 proof in the UK. However, since 1980 alcoholic proof in the UK has been replaced as a measure by ABV.

brer answer me this if you can as it confuses the hell out of me why is it the uk is the only place in the world where when buy or measure goods it uses both ie: i had to by some ducting the other day it was sold as 4" duct in 3m lengths and the bolts to mount it was 10mm head 1 1/2" long???.
just a little poser for you lol

its a very simple way to make everything uber complicated so "they" can PTSL at us!!!....LOL!!! laserGP.gif
