Every day you use measurements in routine activities: you pay for gas by the gallon, buy food by the pound, and measure your trips by the mile. Sometimes, though, you are given measurements in units that are not in the system or unit that you are accustomed to using. When this occurs, system and unit conversions are necessary. Fortunately, formulas have been developed to assist you in making these conversions easily.
Please use these resources to assist you with such system and unit conversions:

To complete this lab you must first interview four different subjects (friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, etc.) and collect three specific pieces of data from each individual (noted in the attached lab). Next you must convert this data into different forms of measurement. Report your collected data, show the equations used in making your conversions, and present your results in the attached lab report. As a capstone to the Assignment, you should answer one examination question that is posed within the lab.
