## Converting units of measurement

The most commonly used units can be converted with the markers on the calculator. The following table shows conversion factors for the most important units.

**Distances**

NM = Nautical Mile (Statuate Mile)

1NM = 1,852 km = 1,15 SM = 6067 feet

mile = Statuate Mile

1 mile = 1,609 km = 0,87 NM (Nautical Mile) = 5280 feet

m = Metre

1 m = 3,28 feet = 1,09 yd

ft = Feet

1 foot = 0,30 m = 0,33 yd

yd = Yard

1 yd = 0,91 m = 3 feet

**Speeds**

kt = Knot

1 kt = 0,51 m/s = 1,852 km/h = 1,15 MPH

MPH = Miles per hour

M PH = 1,609 km/h = 0,87 kt

km/h = Kilometres per hour

1 km/h = 0,540 kt = 0,62 MPH

feet/min = Feet per minute

1 feet/min = 0,018 km/h = 0,005 m/s

m/s = Metres per second

1 m/s = 3,6 km/h = 1,94 kt

**Volume**

Litre

1 LITRE= 0,26 US GAL = 0,22 IMP GAL

US GAL = US Gallon

1 US GAL = 0,83 IMP GAL = 3,79 LITRE

IMP GAL = Imperial Gallon

1 IMP GAL = 1,20 US GAL = 4,55 LITRE

**Mass**

kg = Kilogramm

1 kg = 2,2 lb

lb Pound = Pound (Imperial pound)

1 lb = 0,45 kg
