Dear convert-me.com 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 convert-me.com FaceBook page

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

0.0000067 in/in-degree F = 0.000012 ?????. ...need to know what metric should be used for this thermal expansion coefficient conversion.

It looks like it is being multiplied by 1.8 to restate it per degree C or kelvin (same thing). Note the length unit (inches) cancels out, as it is a proportion. But you could restate as 0.000012 m/m·K. Actually, I would get rid of all the decimal dust and restate as 12 µm/m·K.
