CONVERSION OF METRIC FORMULAS TO ENGLISH UNITS

Many readers will prefer to use the English units of measurement and
Fahrenheit temperatures. This may readily be done in many of the con-
putations. In some of the formulas, however, the temperature enters as a
direct factor. These formulas may be transposed to English units by the
use of a conversion factor, but the Centigrade temperatures must be retained,
as no means has been found to use Fahrenheit temperatures.

P. 11. 1 cu ft of air = 0.0807 Ib. 1 cu ft of waste gases at 0° and 760 mm
or 32° F and 29.92 in weighs from 0.0805 to 0.0830 Ib per cubic foot.

P. 13. When H is expressed in feet, 5 will be expressed in pounds per
square foot, when the specific weights are expressed in pounds per cubic
foot. Pounds per square foot may be converted to inches of water column
by multiplying by the factor 0.19245.

P..27. The formula, Q = K\K«&V2gh, is the same in English units, the
coefficients KI and *2 are practically the same for gases and fluids flowing at
high velocities from thin or sharp-edge orifices, when the area of the orifice
is small. The larger the orifice the less the relative value of these coefficients
affects the flow or the nearer the value of the coefficients approaches unity.
