Online conversions: Using Google to check your unit conversions

Posted on August 26, 2010 by


Unit Conversion

You can use Google to convert between many different units of measurement of height, weight, and volume among many others. Just enter your desired conversion into the search box and we’ll do the rest.

For example, if you type any of these into a Google search box, it will convert from the first unit into the second:

  • 10.5 cm in inches
  • 1 pascal to psi
  • 55 mph to m/s
  • 100 square meters to square feet

This is a good way to check your work. However, realize you can’t take Google with you to a test! All science students need to learn to do simple unit conversions.
