***Conversion Factors and Tables: Metric/U.S. Standards***

The following Images contain Conversions between Metric Standards and U.S. Standards.
Measurements include;

* Conductors: mm² - AWG/MCM,
* Temperature: °F - °C,
* Linear Measurements (lengths, area, volumes, etc.),
* Physical Constants (velocity, mass/weight, force, torque, etc.),
* Energy Constants (work/heat, power, etc.).

These items were submitted to me by PaulUK - Moderator of the Non-US applications area.

[Note: The original documents were .PDF files, which cannot be directly posted
in a thread as a viewable image. Downloading the .PDFs and viewing with the
Acrobat Reader would have to be done.
To avoid this problem, I have converted the .PDFs into Image files (screen captured),
which have been saved in .JPG format @ ± 25% Compression.
This resulted in a larger than wanted image file size, but it's the best I can do
with these graphics overall. I tried a .GIF save, and the result was horrible!]

Please let me know if anyone experiences poor image quality, etc.

Thanks for doing all the conversion leg-work Scott.
