Convert Measurement Units / Unit-Converter

Unit conversion is anything but trivial: Millimeter, centimeter, decimeter, meter, kilometer, miles, nautical miles, foot, yard, inch, cubit, parsecs and light years. With all these measurements distances can be calculated. And this is not even close to all the possible measurements, rather only the most common ones. In the case of areas (square meter, square kilometer, are, hectare, Morgan, acre among others), Temperatures (degrees of Celsius, Kelvin, Fahrenheit), Velocity (m/s, km/h, mph, knots, mach), weights (hundred weight, kilogram, metric ton, US ton, imperial ton, pound among others) and volumes (cubic meter, hectoliter, imperial gallon liquid, US gallon liquid, US gallon dry, barrel among others) is not much better. To complete the chaos the majority of these units also have subunits and supra units (-> milli, centi, deci among others). In short: Chaos, in which no one really seems to see clearly without the help of a reference and varied forms of help. A calculator for units of measurement like this one is perfect for unit conversion.

  1. Choose the right category from the selection list.
  2. Next enter the value you want to convert. The basic operations of arithmetic: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*, x), division (/, :, ÷), exponent (^), brackets and π (pi) are all permitted at this point.
  3. From the selection list, choose the unit that corresponds to the value you want to convert.
  4. Finally choose the unit you want the value to be converted to.
  5. Then, when the result appears, there is still the possibility of rounding it to a specific number of decimal places, whenever it makes sense to do so.

Utilize the full range of performance for this units calculator

With this calculator, it is possible to enter the value to be converted together with the original measurement unit; for example, '730 Revolutions per second'. In so doing, either the full name of the unit or its abbreviation can be usedas an example, either 'Revolutions per second' or 'rps'. Then, the calculator determines the category of the measurement unit of measure that is to be converted, in this case 'Rotational speed'. After that, it converts the entered value into all of the appropriate units known to it. In the resulting list, you will be sure also to find the conversion you originally sought. Alternatively, the value to be converted can be entered as follows: '96 Revolutions per second to Revolutions per minute' or '45 rps -> rpm' or '54 rps = rpm'. For this alternative, the calculator also figures out immediately into which unit the original value is specifically to be converted. Regardless which of these possibilities one uses, it saves one the cumbersome search for the appropriate listing in long selection lists with myriad categories and countless supported units. All of that is taken over for us by the calculator and it gets the job done in a fraction of a second.

Mathematical expressions

Furthermore, the calculator makes it possible to use mathematical expressions. As a result, not only can numbers be reckoned with one another, such as, for example, '(35 * 22) rps'. But different units of measurement can also be coupled with one another directly in the conversion. That could, for example, look like this: '730 Revolutions per second + 2190 Revolutions per minute' or '3mm x 26cm x 59dm = ? cm^3'. The units of measure combined in this way naturally have to fit together and make sense in the combination in question.

numbers in scientific notation

If a check mark has been placed next to 'Numbers in scientific notation', the answer will appear as an exponential. For example, 3.526 049 350 629 ×1028. For this form of presentation, the number will be segmented into an exponent, here 28, and the actual number, here 3.526 049 350 629. For devices on which the possibilities for displaying numbers are limited, such as for example, pocket calculators, one also finds the way of writing numbers as 3.526 049 350 629 E+28. In particular, this makes very large and very small numbers easier to read. If a check mark has not been placed at this spot, then the result is given in the customary way of writing numbers. For the above example, it would then look like this: 35 260 493 506 290 000 000 000 000 000. Independent of the presentation of the results, the maximum precision of this calculator is 14 places. That should be precise enough for most applications.
