The multiple systems of units and measures used in the basic biological, physical, and engineering sciences is often confusing to those with interdisciplinary interests. The following tables have been selected from the Arnold Engineering Development Center Document AEDC TDR 62-6 as most pertinent to such interests. Tables of electrical and thermodynamic units not covered in this extract may be found in the AEDC document. The reader may covert from the measure of quantities in the units listed on the left to those across the top of the page by multiplying by the given factor. The small number to the upper right of each factor is the power of ten by which the factor is to be multiplied. Underscores indicate exact values. Slight numerical differences will be noticed between the values herein and those in most currently existing texts because of the redefinition of the foot in 1960. The only exception to this approach is the altitude table, which is taken from the ARDC Model Atmosphere 1959.
