The symbols are NOT case sensitive. Many other units exist, but these are among the most commonly used.

When you put an object on a scale, you are measuring its weight, not its mass. [2] Mass is the measure of the physical substance contained in something while the weight is the downward force or pressure imparted by local gravitation to the mass. An object's weight may change with location even though its mass remains constant. [3] All computed conversions are based on the EXACTLY defined standard SI units. [4] The extended decimal precision is for theoretical computations and decimals are truncated (not rounded off) at a maximum limit of 68 decimals. ============================================================================== Program by Jay TannerRevised: Thursday, January 01, 1970 at 12:00:00 AM UTC
