For a complete description of SI and its use the reader is referred to ASTM E380.

A representative list of conversion factors from non-SI to SI units is presented herewith. Factors are given to four significant figures. Exact relationships are followed by a dagger. A more complete list is given in the latest editions of ASTM E380 and ANSI Z210.1.

tThe spellings "metre" and "litre" are preferred by ASTM; however, ''-er'' is used in the Encyclopedia. tWide use is made of Celsius temperature (t) defined by t = T - To where T is the thermodynamic temperature, expressed in kelvin, and T0 = 273.15 K by definition. A temperature interval may be expressed in degrees Celsius as well as in kelvin.
