Rather than try to use all these conversion factors, I have sent you a handy little bit of software that will do most conversions that people desire. Forum wont allow me to attach so you may wish to provide some sort of link.

Convert is an easy to use unit conversion program that will convert the most popular units of distance, temperature, volume, time, speed, mass, power, density, pressure, energy and many others, including the ability to create custom conversions!

Thanks to Talbot for the heads up, and to Josh Madison for making his fine conversion program Freeware :

DOWNLOAD CONVERT Ver 4.10:

* ConvertSetup.exe is a full InstallShield installation which sets up directories, icons, and supports uninstallation. This download is recommended for most users.
http://www.joshmadison.com/software/...t/download.asp

*Convert.zip is a ZIP file of just the executable. You can unZIP it with your favorite ZIP tool and just run the executable. This download is recommended for experienced users.
