Re: Mathcad question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I know that, but after years of using lb in hand calculations, using lbf in
MathCAD is just plain annoying (although technically correct). :)

The variable that I would like to see in MathCAD is k for kips.  Which
brings up the question, is that kips as in 1000 lb, or kips as in 1000 kg?
