Re: Where is measurement conversion in 92?


Re: Where is measurement conversion in 92?

I have the TI-85, and I, too, use the conversion features... I will be
getting a TI-92 soon and will write a conversion program using all of the
TI-85 conversions and, if they are supplied, a few not included in the 85.

(I realize that a conversion program exists already.  It does not quite
behave like I'd expect it to).

This is an official call for conversion information:
If you want to see a conversion to/from a unit *NOT* in this list, reply via
Email with the category and a sample conversion using one of the units
already in the list.  If there is a category you wish to see added, email me
with the category name and two units, including a sample calculation.

  mm, cm, m, in, ft, yd, km, mile, nautical mile, lt-yr, mil (in/1000),
angstrom, fermi, rod, fathom

  ft^2, m^2, mi^2, acre, km^2, in^2, cm^2, yd^2, hectare

  liter, gallon, quart, pint, ounce, cm^3, in^3, ft^3, m^3, cup, tsp, tbsp,
ml, UK gallon, UK ounce

  second, minute, hour, day, year, week, ms, microsecond, nanosecond

  Celcius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin

  gram, kg, lb, AMU, slug, ton, megaton

  Newton, dyne, ton-foot, lb-ft, kg-ft

  atmosphere, bar, N/m^2, lb/in^2, mmHg, mmH2O, inHg, inH2O

  Joule, calorie, kcal, BTU, ft-lb, kwhr, eV, erg, l-atm

  hp, W, ftlb/s, cal/s, BTU/m

  ft/s, m/s, mph, kph, knot
