Imperial ↔ Metric Unit Conversions

Tags: units, imperial, metric, day to day, useful

Conversions from common imperial units (foot, acre, cup, pound, etc) to their metric counterparts and vice versa.

All conversion factors are taken from Google and truncated to 4 digits after the decimal point. You probably don’t want to actually memorize to that precision (unless you’re crazy or your mental arithmetic is really good) so I would manually truncate the cards further after you download them.

The “Definitions” field is from Wikipedia’s conversion of units page.

I selected what I felt to be the most useful conversion factor, e.g. inches ⇔ centimeters rather than having all length units in terms of meters.

For students preparing for standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, ESL, TOEFL, and TOEIC. Also for homeschoolers and remote learners. Organized by 250 Greek and Latin roots as the building blocks for words, this book will aid in learning 1,200 words while introducing 2,000 more words. Includes quizzes after each root discussion to test progress.

Notes about the deck design:

  • A well designed deck of “Merriam-Webster Vocabulary Builder”.
  • For each unit, first the ROOT of the words is introduced. (cloze)
  • Then WORDS based on the ROOT is introduced. (cloze, reverse)
  • At the end of the unit QUIZZES are presented for review. (basic)
  • Night Mode!

Cloze Deletions are auto generated using spaCy. (expect weird stuff) ~ https://spacy.io/

Merriam Webster doesn’t use IPA, so all IPA is auto generated using “eng_to_ipa”. ~ https://pypi.org/project/eng-to-ipa/

It differs from the Merriam-Webster Vocabulary Builder deck as in it doesn’t include the “Explanation Text and Word Definition” cloze cards which are rather time consuming.
