Comments/ critiques on my explanation and examples of lbl vs. lbf? http://www.scribd.com/doc/85548870/Conversions-Involving-Lbl-Lbf-Lbm-and-Slugs Are there any other good examples you can think of to give someone who is just learning the English system of force and mass?

We need to comment a lot about the writting but the most important is to solve the problems. Sorry I'm a little to much slow =P.

That's okay! I just had a lightbulb pop up in my head when I realized that I could explain this stuff better than how it was explained in the packet that my instructor gave me.

I'll return in a while, I haven't abandoned this thread.

ok

I have uploaded a revision of my document with more examples :-) http://www.scribd.com/doc/85548870/Conversions-Involving-Lbl-Lbf-Lbm-and-Slugs My goal was to beat the living hell out of this concept... a lot of the people in my class were just NOT understanding.

  • anonymous
So is there anything wrong?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't know =(. Actually I did not know the unit called poundal.
anonymous
  • anonymous
:-)

  • anonymous
The things your wrote are very logically indeed and it seems to me that is right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But I'm not completly sure because I can not understand yet the conversion between slugs and lbm.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought that the lbm was a unit of mass. Now I'm very confused about it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Slug to lbm is similar to saying kilogram to gram. lbm is just a scaled-down version of slugs. lbm and slugs are both mass.
anonymous
  • anonymous
lbl and lbf are units of force.
anonymous
  • anonymous
and what is the scale factor?
anonymous
  • anonymous
32.174?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1 slug = 32.174 lbm
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that is independent of the planet?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I meant... an object of a mass of 2 slugs on earth will be 2 slugs on Pluto... or wherever.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh ok. I think I got it more clear.

Thank you brinethery!

  • anonymous
Yay! I have educated an engineer in mechatronics!
anonymous
  • anonymous
hahaha I'm not an engineer yet =P
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's okay anyway :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
I gave this document to my instructor and he really liked it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But thank you so much. I need to think about these units systems a lot more. I always skip that part haha.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah! is very good. Congratulations good job =).
anonymous
  • anonymous
you're educatin engineer all over the world.
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's awesome =P
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think once you really GET this basic stuff on lbm, slugs, whatever... then all the other stuff involving these units becomes really easy. (But when I'm ruler of the universe, anyone who so as mentions gallons, slugs, lbm, etc. will be be-headed on the spot)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you for all your support :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Haha I support you on that!
