The following tables express the definitions of miscellaneous units of measure as exact nu- merical multiples of coherent SI units and provide multiplying factors for converting num- bers and miscellaneous units to corresponding new numbers and SI units. Conversion factors are expressed using computer exponential notation, and an asterisk follows each number which expresses an exact definition. For example, the entry expresses the fact that meter, exactly by definition. Numbers not followed by an asterisk are only approximate representations of definitions or are the results of physical measurements. In these tables pound-force is designated as lbf, whereas in the text pound-force is designated as lb. 1 inch 5 2.54 3 10 2 2 “2.54 E 2 2*” 824 U nit Conversion Tables 1 A P P E N D I X A n TABLE A.1 Listing by Physical Quantity To convert from to Multiply by Acceleration free fall, standard gal (galileo) Area acre are barn 9.290 304 E 2 2* meter 2 foot 2 1.00 E 2 28* meter 2 1.00 E 1 2* meter 2 4.046 856 422 4 E 1 3* meter 2 2.54 E 2 2* meter / second 2 inch / second 2 1.00 E 2 2* meter / second 2 9.806 65 E 1 0* meter / second 2 3.048 E 2 1* meter / second 2 foot / second 2 1 These Tables abridged from Mechtly, E.
