The volume of an object can often be determined easily using the "method of volume displacement." Place the object (for example, a stone) into a graduated cylinder containing a measured volume of water. The stone will displace the amount (volume) of water equal to its volume. For example, if you have filled the graduated cylinder with 50 millilters (mL) of water, and the total volume changes to 60 mL after the stone has been added, you can deduce the stone's volume to be 10 mL (60 - 50). This result obtained from your measurements (your "data") may be used to obtain another very useful bit of information often valuable to chemists: the object's "density": that is, its mass divided by its volume. Density = mass/volume, of D = M/V. The units for density are usually given in grams per mL or grams per cubic centimeters (cc). Note: a 1 mL = 1 cc. The temperature of the water should be indicated for densities because volume varies with it.

Norah has 2/3 ton of stone to spread equally in 4 square yards. how many tons of stone will be spread in each square yard


The question is worded in such a way to be open to misunderstanding. I feel it could mean Norah must spread her stone at the rate of 2/3 of a ton per square yard across 4 square yards and the total is sought.
It could also be saying that Norah has 2/3 of a ton to be divided equally across 4 square yards and is seeking the amount of stone each square yard needs.

In the former case it is a matter of multiplying the vulgar fraction by four and in the latter case the answer could be approached by considering the total amount of stone given is four times the answer that is required and so would be given by dividing 2/3 by 4/1 or more simply by multiplying by 1/4 and not forgetting to cancel the resulting fraction down to the lowest common denominator.

A better way for practical purposes would be to convert 2/3 of a ton into pounds and then divide by four. A workman required to do the work would not be messing around with fractions but would be working in pounds and tons or if using Imperial measure it would be pounds, stones, hundredweight and tons.

How do i convert kilo to stone and pounds


you can multiply the number of kilos with 2.2 and divide by 14. The answer you get will be the number of stones.
Let's convert 100kg to stones and pounds.
100 x 2.2 /14 = 15.7143 approx. (this is the number of stones)
Now deduct the whole part.
Ans - 15 = 0.7143 approx.
Now multiply this by 14. You get 10. That is the number of pounds.
So the answer is 15 stones and 10 pounds.
If you feel it is explained clearly, please give me a good rating. That will encourage me to help more people like you.
thanks for using FixYa!

I am having trouble pairing the Jabra Stone with my iPhone 3gs. I have held down the stone button multiple times and nothing happens. Also i have turned it on and off multiple times, but it just wont...


Hi, Look for "Add new device". Hit OK.
the phone will search for a couple seconds. If your headset is in paring mode, it will show up on the phone either with the name of device or something like this [unknown headset] or [b2.c3.f4.56.a1] (called a MAC address).

Either way, select it, and hit OK.


The phone will now ask you for a "Pin" or "Passcode", which is a 4 digit number. Headsets will ALWAYS have 0000 (four zeros) as a pin or passcode. I have never encountered a headset with a different number as a passcode. I have been in wireless for 10 years, and still have not found a headset that has any different numbers.

Enter these four zeros and select "OK"


The headset and phone will connect to each other. The phone will display a message that will be something to the effect of:
"Connected to headset".


I've reviewed Bluetooth headsets before, and I would have to say that the Jabra STONE is one of the sleekest looking. Its shape is designed with minimalist simplicity, with a shape made for either the left or the right ear.

This shape goes onto a charger that is perfectly made to accept the Jabra STONE like a puzzle piece. This charger is probably what sets the STONE apart from most Bluetooth headsets, as it can charge the headset as the user goes. A green indicator means that it has enough charge for one full time or more. The red indicator means that it needs to be charged.

The STONE can be charged with an AC cord or USB connection. Once it is charged, there is a pairing indicator that made it simple to sync with my mobile phone. It has about 12 days (288 hours) of standby time and 8 hours of talk time.

I found that pairing the STONE with my phone was quite simple. In a matter of seconds, it was connected to my phone and I was making my first phone call on it.

The sound for the STONE is pretty good, with dual microphones and their trademarked Noise Blackout Extreme and crystal clear sound and voice with DSP.

One of the big features that I found is the touch sensitive volume control. In other words, there is no buttons for controlling the volume. I welcomed that, and most volume controls on Bluetooth headsets are really, really tiny buttons.

Other features include the ability to connect to two devices at a time, and it can stream music from an A2DP enabled mobile phone.

This is the problem that I had with the STONE. I found that there isn't really a "standby" indicator. I found that using it was a hit or miss situation. If I just pulled it out of the charger, it would sync with mobile it would work. When my phone rang later, and the headset was out of the stone cradle, and hitting the "connect" button didn't help. In short, I had to answer my phone. The Jabra STONE failed me, but I remember having similar awkward experiences when I first used other Bluetooth headsets.

The Jabra STONE comes with the headset, charger, 2 Eargels, a belt clip, AC charger, and a USB charger. You should be able to get it on Amazon for about $90 as the price to this writing.

Somehow my tanita ultimate scale has been switched from pounds to stones. How can I get it back to pounds?


Q: Why does "st-lb" or "kg" appear when taking a measurement?
A: The unit's "Weight Mode" has been set to measure your weight in units of stone-pounds (st-lb) or kilograms (kg). Tanita's Body Fat Monitors and the UltimateScales can measure weight in three different modes: lb (pounds), kg (kilograms) or st-lb (British stone-pounds). To change the setting, first find out which model you have (it should be written just above or below the display screen of the unit).
Method 1
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: TBF-611, TBF-612, TBF-621, TBF-622, BF-541, TBF-560, TBF-572. UltimateScales: 2000, 2001, 2001T. BF-662, BF-555, BF-556, BF-558, BF-559, BF-625, BF-626.
Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
Method 2
Body Fat Monitor/Scales: BF-542, TBF-551, TBF-521, TBF-531, BF-681, BF-682, BF-679, BF-680, BF-578, all Ironman products, and all InnerScan products.
Select the preferred weight mode by using switch on the back of the measuring platform.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.
