This is the
format of the conversion factors on this site:

These units multiplied by ..... 
...this factor will...

..convert to these units. 
acre 
160

sq. rods 
Example: The scientific notation used in the factors column helps to reduce
long numbers to a manageable width. E+01 means moving the decimal point one space to the right and E01 means moving the decimal point one space to the left. Remember that you cannot create energy only convert it. Likewise, you will not find a conversion from pounds to metres  the basic units must remain the same  mass converted to mass, length converted to length, and so on. You won't usually find a conversion from kilograms to grams  the prefix 'kilo' means '1,000' so a kilogram is in fact 1,000 grams in the same way as a kilometer is 1,000 metres [or about 1,000 yards in 'old money']. I have put a few in the table because visitors have asked for them. More examples can be found on the prefix table. One handy metric link between units Remember that 1 Litre [1000cc] of pure water weighs 1 kilogram. Equally, 1 milliliter of pure water has a mass of 1 gram or 1mL = 1g. The upper case L for liter is preferable as the lower case can be confused with the figure one, however it is common to see ml for milliliters on bottles. If accuracy is critical beware of old versions of MS Excel which had problems rounding off numbers. We have tried to be accurate with the data but cannot be held responsible for inaccuracies.
