Memorizing unit conversions?

Postby skyeblee2F » Sun Jan 27, 2019 8:01 pm

The problems for chapter 8 consist of a lot of conversions between units (i.e. 1 Torr = 133.3 Pa). Should we be memorizing all of these conversions, some of them, or would they all be provided?

I believe they should be all provided on the constants and equations sheet given.

Hello! No, you do not need to memorize most of the unit conversions, constants, and basic equations because most of them will be given to you on the exam. Professor Lavelle is mainly concerned about whether or not you can apply equations, units, etc. and conceptualize, not simply memorize a list of constants.

i dont think its necessary to memorize any units , it may be helpful but i think the conversions will be provided when needed
