1. ## Swedeboys CONVERTION table

Here comes a short convertion table. Hope it will help.

g=gram
kg=kilogram
m=meter
dm=decimeter
cm=centimeter
mm=millimeter
l=liter
dl=deciliter
cl=centiliter
ml=milliliter
lbs=pound
in=inch
gal=gallon
foot=foot
feet=feet (pluralis for foot )
ga=gauge
yards=yards
miles=miles

Weight:
1000g=1kg=2.2lbs
1lbs=0.453kg=453g

Lenght:
1000mm=100cm=10dm=1m=39.37inches
1cm=0.3937inches
1cm=0.0328feet
1m=3.28feet=1.0936yards=0.6214miles
1inch=0.0254m=0.254dm=2.54cm=25.4mm
1foot(feet)=30.48cm
1 yard=0.9144m=91.44cm
1 mile=1.609km=1609m

Weight/volym:
1000ml=100cl=10dl=1liter=0.264gal
1gal=3.785liters=37.85dl=378.5cl=3785ml

Thickness/volym:
15ga= .0720in= 1.8288mm
16ga= .0625in= 1.5875mm
17ga= .0540in= 1.3716 mm
18ga= .0475in= 1.2065 mm
19ga= .0410in= 1.0414 mm
20ga= .0348in= .8839 mm
21ga= .0317in= .8052 mm
22ga= .0286in= .7264 mm
23ga= .0258in= .6553 mm
24ga= .0230in= .5842 mm
25ga= .0204in= .5182 mm
26ga= .0181in= .4597 mm
27ga= .0173in= .4394 mm
28ga= .0162in= .4115 mm
29ga= .0150in= .3810 mm
30ga= .0140in= .3556 mm

Temperature(if anyone is interested):
212F=100C

The formula is:
F to C=> (F-32)*0.556
C to F=> C*1.8+32
The * is mulitply

thanks bro..i was looking for that exact conversion for F-C and C-F for ever....

again thanks..

3. Good one Sweed... btw where is your tempature conversion to Kelvin?

4. Now when you Yankees watch the weather network and see "Detroit 76, Windsor Ontario" 24 you will realize that it is THE SAME THING!!! This is the reason that Americans show up at our border in July with their skis "Look Honey...it's only 24 in Ontario. That must be the reason we drew the border at that spot....perpetual cold front"

LOL, I knew everyone was going to talk about the temperature conversion on this list. I was going to be the first reply about that and I backed out. If I remember correctly, to calculate Kelvin, take the C temp and add 273 degrees.

6. ## The Easy Way . . .

If you want to be lazy (reserving both your physical and mental strength for where it matters - the gym, of course) and if you have Encarta Encyclopedia (part of the Microsoft package) on your computer, just look up the article on "Weights and Measures," then click on the conversion table. The conversions apear as soon as you enter the original numbers.

7. What the hell do you guys need kalvin for. What, are you trying to stop the motion or something like that. If you are then go with 0 K and nothing will move. HAHA

8. What is kelvin?

I'm getting the feeling that this is a stupid question, that Kelvin is something anyone should know, but I don't.

9. I use it for calculating heat transfers in Physics.

Has anyone else noticed that the Black Scholes option pricing model looks a lot like a heat transfer problem in physics? It is inherently obvious even to the casual observer that the two share similar properties. Any thjoughts? TNT?

10. -273.15 C = 0 K (Kalvin)

At Zero Kalvin all matter stops vibrating, so it stops moving.

I don't get how you did not know about it, you live in europe. When I lived at europe that was one of the first things that they told us to know.

11. I thought Calvin was that precautious little 6yr old boy, who imagined that his stuffed tiger ,Hobbes, was a real talking tiger.

Oh my god how funny you mention that Pete!!! I was talking to my canadian friend last night and he was going off on these amaericans who didnt know anything about Canada and they'd honest to god have people with wisconsin license plates etc etc showing up driving through their town with snoe mobiles in their trucks in the middle of july because everyone thinks Cannucks live in blizzards and igloos all eyar round LOL too funny....

Absolute Zero Kelvin = absolute Empty space....Singularity.
In the intervening space between galaxies, there exists a temperature of about 0,03 degrees above absolute zero.
As this temperature has very little matter/energy, the only flucuation is the energy of virtual photons popping in and out of existence, due to the very short lifespans, there is virtual no matter present in empty space, thus the singular near temperature is maintained, and any deviation towards absolute zero, would involve a tearing of the fabric of space, when this fracture's near, absolute zero,negative energy is realeased and gravitons pour into the singularity, there is an exchange of force from minimum negative gravity,(repulsive) to maximum attractive gravity.
This well is opened and closed instantly, and depending on the angle of the tear in space, could create a hole of density that is for all intensive purpose's, a black-hole.
if there is sufficient time, there is a bubble of matter expeled into the local zone, and a sun is born.

Um, yeah . . . what he said.
