Question about HP 50g Graphic Calculator

1 Answer

UNITS I'm writing a units based calculation which, will amongst others, will convert cubic meters a day into millions of cubic meters per day. The first part is easy, just multiply by '1_m^3/d'. The second part is more difficult. I have tried '1_Mm^3/d' but this is interpreted as millions of meters cubed per day. I have also tried '1_M(m^3)/d' and '1_M(m^3/d)' but these result in nonsence. I seem to remember reading about how to solve tis in my old HP48sx manual, but I have long since lost them. Can you help?

What's wrong with simply diving by a million?

The conversion factor between 1_m^3/d and 1e6_m^3/d is 1e-6.

    Alternatively, since a million cubic meters is a cubic hectometer, you could specify it as 1_hm^3/d

Convert kg to cubic meters how many kg to one cubic meter

Kilogram is a unit of mass (or weight). Cubic meter is a unit of volume. There is no direct conversion between them.

A cubic meter of water weighs 1000 kilograms. A cubic meter of gold weighs nearly 20,000 kilograms.

3cubemeters how many meters?

You can't convert cubic meters to meters. Cubic meter is a unit of volume and meter is a unit of length. Both in the International System of Units.

1600 cubic feet equal how many pounds.

A cubic foot is a unit of volume. A pound can be a unit od mass (weight) or a currency. Either way a volume cannot be converted into a mass nor a currency.
If you are doing homework read carefully the question to figure out what substance they are talking about.
Once you know the substance look up its density or specific gravity and do the calculation
mass (in pouunds) =density (in pounds per cubic foot) * volume (in cubic feet)

As you see, if you know the density (specific gravity) in pounds per cubic foot, you can calculate the mass of any volume of that substance (in cubic feet).

And please, never try to convert a volume into a mass.

3 tons how many metric meters does this work out to be

Metric Meter is not a relatable unit to tons. Cubic meter might be what you are looking for.
That being the case it depends on what you have 3 tons of, everything has a different density, meaning everything has a different weight(tons) per unit of volume(cubic meter) so first off you need to find out what material you are trying to figure this out for. Water for example weighs less per cubic meter than steel weighs per cubic meter. Then once you know that material you can then ask what is the density of that material. Once you find the density you can convert that information into any relative unit of measure you need, so re-post with a little more info and make sure you are looking for the right units and somebody can answer your question.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

How many tons in 3 cubic meters sq by 3inchs deep

I am sorry to say it but your units do not make sense: Units of volumes and areas are mixed up.
Let us try to make sense of it.
If you have some container whose base is 3 square meters (not cubic meter sq) and it has a height of 3 inches you can calculate its volume in cubic meters or in cubic inches or cubic feet. To do so convert the height in inches into meters and multiply the area of the base by the height in meters and you will obtain the volume in cubic meters. To get the volume in cubic inches convert the area of the base to square inches and multiply by the height in inches.

However, even after you have expressed the volume in one unit or another (m^3 or in^3) you cannot find the mass of the substance contained (be it in tons, tonnes or kilograms): You need to know the substance and more specifically its density or its specific gravity).
Please, reformulate your question and specify the substance that fills or would fill the volume. Without that information, nothing doing.

How to convert cubic meters to square foot

That is something that cannot be done (cubic to square). You can convert cubic meters to cubic feet or square meters to square feet as follows:

Multiply cubic meters by 35.3146 to get cubic feet

Multiply square meters by 10.7639 to get square feet

We need to convert 20m3/s to pascals. Can this be done?

A Pascal is kg/(m s2) or one kilogram per meter per seconds squared. Thus, the units are inconsistent with each other.
