Various Unit Conversions
Updated: Sep 27
This post is starting off very, very small. I'll add to it periodically. What I really have in mind here is an easy place I can go to when I need this type of information. What I recommend is that you download a FREE, small, handy program called Convert 123, from a company called Pipeflow. I have installed this simple program on every computer I use. It provides a wide range of unit conversions, as shown in the screenshot below. I have no affiliation with this company other than the fact that I've been a user of their excellent, cost-effective, software programs for many years. In addition to Convert 123, I use Pipe Flow Expert, Pipe Flow Wizard, and Pipe Flow Advisor.

Documents Available for Download
In doing research I often come across documents that do a good job of tabulating and/or summarizing useful data and information. You can download PDF versions here.
This is a 66-page document providing information on the metric and imperial measurement systems. Numerous examples of math/conversion problems with solutions are provided. This is a very clear and concise document - well done!
Short, 4-page document called Units of Concentration that discusses moles and normality.
Just a 1-page document with units of measurement used in the medical field with many of which are applicable to those of us working with water and wastewater.
