The popularity of the Internet allows you to chat and visit message forums with people from many different countries. This causes minor difficulties while chatting as some countries use traditional units such as feet, pounds, and Fahrenheit, while other countries use the metric system with meters, kilograms, and Celsius.
I have gathered together all the basic conversions you may need for these international conversations. Hopefully it will make it easier for everyone by keeping them all in one place.
Convert between meters (m) and traditional units of feet (ft or ') and inches (in or ").
Convert between traditional U.S. pounds (lb), stones (st) and metric kilograms (kg).
Convert between traditional degree Fahrenheit (°F) and metric degree Celsius (°C) which is sometimes called degree centigrade.
Convert between traditional square feet, or square foot, (ft2), acres, and metric square meters (m2).
Convert between traditional U.S. pounds (lb), ounces (oz), and metric kilograms (kg).
Convert between traditional inches (in) and metric centimeters (cm).
It may come in handy.
