## CONVERSION FACTORS FOR SI UNITS

English units have been retained
in the body of this report. The report refers to commercially available
materials and sizes which are commonly expressed in English units. The
conversion factors for SI (Standard International - metric) units are given below:

Note I: To convert
temperatures, use the following equation,
K = 273 + 0.5556 X (F - 32),

where F is the temperature in
Fahrenheit degrees, and K is the temperature in Kelvin degrees.
