In the American engineering system of units, the viscosity can gave the units of (lbf)(hr)/(ft^2), while in the handbook the units are (g)/(cm)(s). Convert a viscosity of 20.0 (g)/(m)(s) to the given American Engineering units?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can figure out any conversion factor this way, for instance: \[1 \text{ hour} = 60 \text{ min}\] So if you want to convert hours to minutes, like \[120 \text{ minutes}\] you want to divide out the minutes, so we take our first equation and divide both sides by minutes to get: \[\frac{1 \text{ hour}}{60 \text{ minutes} }=1\] See, we can multiply anything by 1 and it doesn't change it, and this thing on the left is equal to 1! \[120 \text{ minutes}*1 =120 \text{ minutes}*\frac{1 \text{ hour}}{60 \text{ minutes} } = 2 \text{ hours} \] The minutes divide out just like anything divided by itself is also 1. \[\frac{7}{7}=1\] \[\frac{minutes}{minutes}=1\] \[\frac{elephants}{elephants}=1\]
