    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..

    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.

    Cool 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.

    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

    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.

    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?

    -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.

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

    Here's something about absolute zero (just to blow your mind)

    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.
