1. Linear measures

  • 1 inch (in) = 2,54 cm
  • 1 foot(ft) = 12 inches = 30,48 cm
  • 1 yard (yd) = 3 feet = 91,44 cm
  • 1 furlong (fur) = 220 yards = 201,17 m
  • 1 mile (mi) = 1760 yards = 1609,344 m
  • 1 league (lea) = 3 miles = 4828,032 m

2. Nautical measures

  • 1 fathom = 6 feet = 1,829 m
  • 1 cable = 608 feet = 185,31 m
  • 1 mile (nautical, sea mile) = 10 cables = 1,852 km
  • 1 sea league = 3 nautical miles = 5,550 km

3. Liquid measures of capacity (UK)

  • 1 gill = 0,142 l
  • 1 pint (pt) = 4 gills = 0,568 l
  • 1 quart (qt) = 2 pints = 1,136 l
  • 1 gallon (gal) = 4 quarts = 4,564 l
  • 1 barrel = 35 gallons = 159,106 l
  • 1 barrel = 36 gallons (beer) = 163,656 l

4. Liquid measures of capacity (US)

  • 1 gill 0,118 l
  • 1 pint = 4 gills = 0,473 l
  • 1 quart = 2 pints = 0,946 l
  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts = 3,785 l
  • 1 barrel = 42 gallons = 159,106 l

5. Avoirdupois weights

  • 1 grain (gr) = 0,065 g
  • 1 dram (dr) = 27,3438 grains = 1,772 g
  • 1 ounce (oz) = 16 drams = 28,35 g
  • 1 pounds (pound - lb) = 16 ounces = 453,59 g
  • 1 stone = 14 pounds = 6,348 kg
  • 1 quarter = 28 pounds = 12,701 kg
  • 1 hundredweight (cwt) = 112 pounds (UK) = 50,8 kg = 100 pounds (US) = 45,36 kg
  • 1 ton = 20 cwt (UK) = 1016 kg = 2000 pounds (US) = 907,185 kg

6. Temperature conversion

Fahrenheit - Celsius Celsius - Fahrenheit
Subtract 32 and multiply by 5/9. Multiply by 9/5 and add 32.
°F °C °C °F
0 -17,8 0 32
50 10 30 86
100 37,7 50 122
200 93,3 100 212
