Unit Conversion

I am going to be visiting Australia soon and I was trying to understand the difference between KM and MPH and distances, since I will be driving over there. I came across your web page [Research Links], which really provides a lot of useful links for unit conversions.

I am writing because I wanted to let you know that you have a broken link on the page. Try clicking on the text Measure 4 Measure. It leads to a page that doesn’t exist anymore. If you replace it with a working link, you should consider this one: [Unit Conversion]. It has a bunch of online conversions, including temperature and time zone. Very helpful for those of us traveling soon.

Thank you. When we update Research Links, we will add Unit Conversion, a very useful site. It converts measures of weight, length, pressure, angles, volume, temperature, data storage, and also time zones.

Do you have suggestions for Research Links? Let us know.

For those of you who have not visited Research Links, it is an incredible, well-organized collection of links on books, magazines, libraries, news sites, blogs, encyclopedias, search engines, dictionaries, web directories, quotations, experts, calculators and converters, and much more. In addition, it has links on specific subject matter—history, literature, law, philosophy, social sciences, foreign languages, math, science, art, music, and much more. Definitely worth a visit.
