**Notes **

The acceleration of gravity, 9.8066 m/s^{2}, is used to convert between mass and
force.

Pound(mass) and pound(force) have identical numerical values. We list both units
because many people are used to using one or the other and like to see them listed
separately.

The BTU and calorie units are thermochemical values.

Abbreviations used in our calculator:

bbl=barrel, BTU=British thermal unit, cm=centimeter, ft=foot, km=kilometer, kW=kiloWatt,
lb=pound, lb(f)=pound(force), lb(m)=pound(mass), m=meter, Mcf=million cubic feet,
mg=milligram, MGD=million gallons per day, mm=millimeter, MPa=Mega Pascal, min=minute,
N=newton, s=sec=second, UK=United Kingdom (used for gallons), US=United States (used for
gallons and some other units), yr=year

LMNO Engineering wrote the computer program in Java using double precision so that the
maximum amount of decimal places in the unit conversions could be used. We used the
maximum amount of significant figures for each unit. For instance, Munson et al.
(1998) provides a unit conversion of 1 bushel(US)=0.03523907016688 meter^{3}.
We used all of the digits in the program.

It indicates which unit conversions are exact by definition and which are approximate - there are some units in existence that cannot be exactly converted from one unit to another. For the non-exact conversions, it provides on the order of 10 significant digits for each unit.)
