Now let me show you how to do dimensional math and conversions on your
Measure Master Pro. First off, to enter dimensions you enter them in just as you'd
say them. Twelve feet
seven inches and seven slash eighths.
You can enter fractions all the way down to sixty fourths of an inch, but you're not
locked into that format. You can combine formats. You can say plus 32.5
inches decimally. Plus three point five feet
minus two yards plus three meters
plus thirty five millimeters. Just for the heck of it you hit the
equals key and it comes back in the format that we first started with - the feet-inch-fractions.
If you don't like that you can convert
to feet decimal, back to feet-inch-fractions, inches and fractions, inches
and decimal,
yards, meters, centimeters and millimeters.
Let's go back to feet-inch-fractions since that's what I understand best. Let's say
we want to divide that by three for equal spacing. Divide it be three, equals that.
So you can add, subtract, multiply and divide with these. Say that's one side of
a pad and you know the other side is by fourteen feet seven inches. There's your
square footage.
By
four inches deep
and there's some cubic yardage, just that simple. You can also directly enter
square, area and cubic volume values. For example, if you knew you had a hundred
square feet, you had a ten by ten room. You just hit 100 [Feet] [Feet], there it says square
feet. One more press will move it over to cubic feet. So you can directly enter
cubic inches, cubic feet, cubic meters, so forth just that easily.
There's also a weight per volume function that allows you to convert
cubic volumes into weights based on a known set factor. Here we have it set at
1.5 tons per cubic yard. So, if in the example before I said I had ten
[Yard] [Yard] [Yard] for cubic yards and I wanted to convert that to weight
I would
hit convert
and there's metric tons,
there's
pounds and there's tons. Right there, fifteen tons.
So that's a quick overview on the dimensional math and conversion
functions. For more details you can download our user's guide at www.calculated.com/support.
