  • Good list, I am looking for a good published source for these conversions.  A source I can state for any conversions for legal work.  Can anyone recommend one?

  • Good list, I have one similar to it that I added to my HP33s and the HP35s  EQN list on the calculators.

    This can be stored there and recalled when needed at work or taking one's test.
