First thing first: The FREE Unit Conversion Template can be downloaded HERE.
Now, on to business......
Anyone who has kicked around the world of engineering for long knows one thing for certain: nobody can agree on what units to use for what quantities!
How many different ways do you know to represent length, area, volume, temperature, pressure, force, energy, work, or a dozen other kinds of quanties? Lots, that's how many!
Well, this template is a simple Excel spreadsheet which lets you type in a quantity in any known unit, and it will give you back the equivalent measure in just about all other useful (and some useless) systems of units. And since it's Excel, you are free to add, modify, or otherwise customize it to your liking and convenience. And for a mere $5 USD, it can be yours.
As of now, it contains conversion charts for dozens of different units of: Length, Area, Volume, Weight, Temparature, Force, Energy, Power, Pressure, and Time. And I add new ones all the time. But don't worry, I'll send out free updates to all purchasers whenever I finish a major addition.
Not sure if this is the template you need? Well.... how about you download the FREE version right now and check it out! This doesn't have as many units in it as the full ($5!!) version, and you can't customize it yourself, but it will give you the flavor. If it looks good, but you still want more, the full version can be yours by sending me $5 through PayPal or with your Credit Card. Also, send me an email so I'll know where to send your full copy. Or, you can get the password from me and unlock the full potential yourself; it's already all there in the file. (See bottom of page) Either way, feel free to send me an email with your suggestions for how I could make it better. I'd appreciate it!
How to use PayPal:
Just hop on over to www.paypal.com and use your credit card or your checking account, or your own PayPal account if you have one. This only takes a few moments (they will want you to "register" but it's pretty trivial). Click on "Send Money" and answer a few questions. You send the money to my account name, which is my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The price is $5 US, remember.
How to use a Credit Card:
Or, if you don't have a PayPal account and don't want one, that's cool too. You can go the traditional route and pay directly with a credit card. Just click on the "Buy Now" button below and PayPal will take you to the standard Credit Card payment screen that we all know and love so well.
Whichever method you choose, I'll get an email letting me know you've paid, and I'll email your template to you. If you are in a hurry, you might want to call or email directly to me first to make sure I'm available to send it. I usually am, but occasionally I go to meetings or to sleep or stuff like that. Did I mention our Cost Benefit Analysis template? It has a free version too. Check it out here.
PASSWORD INFORMATION: If for some reason you aren't capable of receiving another file, you can get the password to unlock the free file for the same $5 fee. Once you have the password, merely go to the Tools tab on each page of the file, select Protection, and Unprotect Sheet. Supply the password and press OK. Then, all you have to do is highlight all the blank cells and turn the font to Black, and you'll be ready to go!! Or, if you want to try to guess the password to save yourself the $5, be my guest!!
