Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

My first reaction was "what the hell is an Ibmol." I think the "I" may really be an "l" lower case L. People who use US Customary units for calculations use lb-mol, or pound mole. It is 453.592 37 "real" moles, just the conversion between grams and pounds. Just as 12 g of carbon is a mole, 12 lb of carbon is a pound mole (ie an amount equal to atomic or molecular weight, but in pounds, not grams)

The fact I know what it is does NOT mean I support or encourage this ridiculous unit. You'll go blind working engineering calculations in Customary units [/end metric rant].
