Objectives

Students should be able to:

1. Convert between single units using dimensional analysis. (e.g. converting miles to cm)
2. Convert between fractional units using dimensional analysis (e.g. m/s to miles/h )
3. Convert between units that require powers. (e.g. gallons to ft3 or acres to cm2.)
• You will given a conversion sheet so you do not need to memorize the values on the conversion sheet.
