Description

This volume promotes order within the confusion of the many systems of units in existence. After establishing a clearer picture of science today, it examines the articulated language science by defining the units and their systems, and by offering a quick method to convert from one unit to another. Concise and to the point, it allows the reader to go from generalities to specifics-and vice versa-in a matter of minutes.
