1 Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Introduction Engineers of all disciplines are constantly required to work with measurements of a variety of quantities length, area, volume, mass, force, time, temperature, electric current, etc. It is often necessary to be able to express those measurements in different units. For example, when designing a water distribution piping system, it is important to know how much water pressure is lost as the fluid flows through the pipe. The pressure loss depends on the length of the pipe which is often measured in miles. One formula that is sometimes used to calculate pressure loss requires that the pipe length be input in feet. Therefore, it is necessary to be able to convert miles to feet. In other situations you may be forced to work between the SI and U S Customary measurement systems. Say, for example, that as a U S company, your product is manufactured and produced based on U S Customary units. However, a European company would like a proposal to incorporate your system into their existing assembly line, the characteristics of which are based on SI units. You must be able to convert between the two systems in order to provide a proposal for a design which includes your company s U S product. In this activity you will convert measurements among units in both the U S Customary System and the SI system, and you will convert quantities between the two systems of measurement. You will also gain experience with converting units among units that are not specific to one measurement system (such as people and tanks of water) and use the skills you learn to solve everyday problems (such as calculating the cost of gas to travel a given distance). Equipment Procedure Engineering notebook Pencil Ruler U S Customary and metric Tape measure PLTW Engineering Formula Sheet Complete each of the following. When a calculation is required, show your work. IED Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Page 1

2 1. Write an equation that shows the equivalency between meters and Gigameters. 2. What conversion factor should be used to convert from meters to Gigameters? 3. Convert each of the following quantities to the indicated units. Use the appropriate number of significant figures to express your answer unless directed otherwise. a trillion (4,567,000,000,000) meters to Gigameters. b milliliters to liters. Report to the nearest hundredth of a liter. c. 43 thousand microseconds to seconds. Report to the nearest thousandth of a second. d yards to feet. e feet to inches. f. 9 ft 2 ½ in. to inches. Report answer using fractional inches. g. 3 ft 5 inches to decimal feet. Report to the nearest hundredth of a foot. h cm to inches. i yards to inches. IED Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Page 2

4 c. If you ride your bike at an average speed of 15 mph, how long will it take you to ride to your grandparents home? Express your answer in hours (to the nearest hundredth of an hour). Convert to minutes (to the nearest minute). d. If the circumference of each wheel on your bicycle is 82.6 inches, how many revolutions of a bicycle wheel will it take to get to your grandparents home? Give your answer to the nearest revolution. Hint: You need to convert miles to inches and create a conversion factor to convert inches to revolutions of a wheel. 6. Measure the size of your desk (length, width, and height) using a tape measure. Record the measurement in feet and inches, and then convert the measurements to decimal feet and decimal inches. Feet-inches Decimal feet Decimal inches width height depth IED Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Page 4

5 7. Measure and record additional items in your classroom and then convert each measurement to an alternate unit as directed by your instructor. Object Description of Original Original Units Converted Converted Units room length x width 25-6 x 30-0 ft-in x 9.15 m CD diameter 4 5/8 in. cm 8. Many track and field events are measured in metric units. a. In the long jump, if you can jump 5.92 meters, what is your jump length in feet? In yards? b. How many yards must you run to complete a 100 meter dash? c. The women s world record high jump is 6 feet, 10 ¼ inches. What is the record in meters? Record your answer to the nearest hundredth of a meter. d. How many meters is equivalent to a mile? Give your answer to the nearest meter. e. What is the length of a marathon (26.2 miles) in kilometers? 9. A European car manufacturer reports that the fuel efficiency of the new MicroCar is 28.5 km/l highway and 22.0 km/l city. What are the equivalent fuel efficiency rates in miles per gal? IED Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Page 5

6 If gas costs \$3.50 per gal, how much would it cost to drive 500 miles in the city in this car (assuming the fuel efficiency rating is accurate)? Conclusion 1. Why would you have to know how to convert measurements when looking at a technical drawing? 2. How can you use units help you solve a problem? IED Activity 3.2 Unit Conversion Page 6
