<anchor role="natural" id="p200139d89981_21"></anchor><emphasis role="bold">CONVERSION OF VALUES FROM U.S. CUSTOMARY UNITS TO SI UNITS</emphasis>American engineers are probably more familiar with the magnitude of physical entities in U.S. customary units than in SI units. Consequently, errors made in the conversion from one set of units to the other may go undetected. The fol-lowing six examples will show how to convert the elements in six dimensionless groups. Proper conversions will result in the same numerical value for the dimensionless number. The dimensionless numbers used as examples are the Reynold…
