Now let’s go into the details of this handy tool. CONVERT This converts a number from one measurement system to another. For example, CONVERT can translate a table of distances in miles to a table of distances in kilometers. Syntax CONVERT(number,from_unit.to_unit) Number is the value in from_units to convert. From_unit is the units for number. To_unit for from_unit and to_unit. Weight and mass u 9| Gram g u. 9| Slug 5g Pound mass (avoirdupois) U (atomic mass unit) it Ounce mass (avoirdupois) Fromﬁunit or to_unit “lbm” n ozm is the units for the result. CONVERT accepts the following text values .

If the unit does not exist, CONVERT returns the #NIA error value. If the unit does not support an abbreviated unit preﬁx, CONVERT returns the #ENIA error value. If the units are in different groups, CONVERT returns the #NIA error value. Unit names and preﬁxes are case-sensitive. Examples CONVERTUD, “lbm”, “ g") equals 0.453592 CONVERT(68, “F”, “C”) equals 20 CONVERT(2.5, "ft", “sec”) equals #NIA Don’t forget the quotation marks (“ ”). 6.6 Matrix algebra 0 Matrix algebra applications include solving systems of simultaneous linear algebraic equations in several variables and rotation of coordinate systems. The matrix algebra operations available in EXCEL are limited, but there are enough to do some useful things. If you need more advanced operations, you can use pro- grams such as MATHCAD, MATLAB, or MATl-IEMATICA. A 2x2 matrix (consist- ing of 2 rows and 2 columns) looks like this: [“11 “21] “12 “22 The determinant of a 2x2 matrix looks like this: “11 “21 =“11“22 " “12“21 (6'8) “12 “22 For example, 2 - 3 ‘7 5 ‘ =(2)(-5)—('1')(—3)= 10 + 21 = 31. (6-9) Array formulas and how to enter them An array formula can perform multiple calculations and then return either a sin- gle result or multiple results. Array formulas act on two or more sets of values ...
