Conversions

Postby Diana Catapusan 1N » Wed Oct 12, 2016 5:12 pm

A problem I keep having is that I forget when to convert kilograms into grams or milliliters into liters and vice versa. When is it necessary to work in kg or grams? mL or liters? Do you all have any tips on how to remember when to convert units? Thank you!

For all equations that include joules use kilograms- this includes the De Broglie equation and Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Also, always use liters for molarity. To remember to convert units just look at the units you want in your answer and keep in mind that 1 J = 1 kg*m^2/s^2.
