I could use a real engineers help...

Hey, I'm having a hell of a problem with density. I'm trying to enter the density of Beryllium into my CAD package. The problem is that my density givein to me is in Lb/in^3 and the format I need it in is gram/mm^3. I've been looking all day and cant find a calculator or formula to get me what I need. You'all have any ideas??? So far the closest I've gotten is that I set my cad to inches, which gave me my Lb/in^3 for which I entered the number I had. Then I told the cad that I changed the units back to MM and it then changed my density to gram/mm^3, but the number it had in it before is different than the number It changed it to. So I'm not sure if it automaticly converted the density to gram/mm^3, or what. I need to figure this out so I can check the numbers the computer put in. Thanks Again...........

Hi Scott,

you can do a yahoo search for density conversion and get plenty of sites. One I looked at is onlineengineer.ca/density.htm

It gives kg/mm^3, but just divide this number by 1000 to get grams!

Hope this helps,

Seth

It only gave m^3, but I didn't think of converting the weight volume, as long as the measuring volume is the same. I needed to divide by 2000, but it did come up with the same numbers my cad did. Thanks alot. sometimes all it takes is a view from the outside..........
