There will be some conversions given. We will be given the same equation sheet as the one we got on Test 1, so it might be good to look over the equations on there to figure out what you might need to memorize/study mroe!
It's really nice to know the conversions at the top of your head so you're not looking around the reference sheet for them. However, I believe Lavelle is quite generous and provides most of the formulas and conversions for the exams.
In case I forgot how to do a conversion, I use the equation sheet and confirm my answer using KHDUDCM ( King Henry Doesn't Usually Drink Chocolate Milk). This acronym stands for each unit and u is the base unit you convert to a different unit, the number of times you move from U or another base unit represents the number of decimal places. I found it really helpful during tests when I wanted to confirm my conversions were right.
For every test that we get,we will always get a reference sheet with conversions and equations. This will be for all the test that we take for the class unless the conversion is so obvious then they won't give it but that is unlikely.
Most of the complicated conversions you don't need to memorize it because they are given in the constant/equation sheet (check it out on Dr Lavelle's website). But if you find a conversion you think you will need for the final that isn't on the sheet, then yeah memorize it.
Most if not all conversions that you'd need to perform on any assessment in this class appears to be on the equation sheet we're given. However, it would still be helpful to know the conversions so that you don't have to keep on looking back and forth during a test.
The constants and equations sheet is on the class website, and that's the same one given for the midterm and final. You should check it out, and if there's anything that is not on there, you should memorize it.
