Conversion Lab Assignment

Every day you use measurements in routine activities: you pay for gas by the gallon, buy food by the pound, and measure your trips by the mile. Sometimes though, you are given measurements in units that are not in the system or unit that you are most accustomed to using. When this occurs, system and unit conversions are necessary. Fortunately, formulas have been developed to assist you in making these conversions easily.

Please use this resource to assist you with the system and unit conversions: Watch Unit Conversions, a Kaplan University Science Center Resource: Kaplan Science Center. (2013). Unit conversions.
