millimeters (mm) millimeters x 0.03937 = inches
centimeters (cm) centimeter x 0.3937 = inches
meters (m) meters x 3.281 = feet
meters per second x 3.281 = feet per second
square meters x 10.76 = square feet
square meters x 1.196 = square yards
square meters x 0.0002471 = square acres
cubic meters x 35.31 = cubic feet
cubic meters x 1.308 = cubic yard
cubic meters x 0.0008107 = acre-feet
cubic meters per second x 35.31 = cubic feet per second
cubic meters per second x 15,850.00 = gallons per minute
kilometers (km) kilometers x 0.6214 = miles
square kilometers x 0.3861 = square miles
cubic kilometers x 0.2399 = cubic miles
inches (in) inches x 25.4 = millimeters
inches x 2.54 = centimeters
square inch x 6.4516 = square centimeters
feet (ft) feet x 0.3048 = meters

Temperature Conversions
degrees Fahrenheit (F)
degrees Celsius (C)
(F - 32) x 5/9 = C
(C x 1.8) + 32 = F
(C x 2) - (C x 2 x 0.1) + 32 = F
a) double the Celsius temperature
b) subtract 10% of the doubled temperature
