The Calculator Encyclopedia Converts Units of Illumination in Light Conversions

According to Wikipedia,

Lighting or illumination is the deliberate use of light to achieve a practical or aesthetic effect. Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylightDaylighting (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) is sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings. This can save energy in place of using artificial lighting, which represents a major component of energy consumption in buildings. Proper lighting can enhance task performance, improve the appearance of an area, or have positive psychological effects on occupants.

The calculator encyclopedia converts 12 units of illumination. These units are:

  • Lux
  • Meter-Candle
  • Centimeter-Candle
  • Foot-Candle
  • Flame
  • Phot
  • Nox
  • Candela Steradian/sq. m
  • Lumen/sq. m
  • Lumen/sq. cm
  • Lumen/sq. ft
  • Watt/sq. cm (at 555nm)

To commence this conversion, proceed to the Calculator Map, click on Light Switches under Switches (Unit Conversion).

Nickzom Calculator Converts Units of Typography

According to Wikipedia,

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legiblereadable, and appealing when displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefacespoint sizesline lengths, line-spacing (leading), and letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning). The term typography is also applied to the style, arrangement, and appearance of the letters, numbers, and symbols created by the process. Type design is a closely related craft, sometimes considered part of typography; most typographers do not design typefaces, and some type designers do not consider themselves typographers. Typography also may be used as a decorative device, unrelated to communication of information.

There are various units of typography. Nickzom Calculator converts the following units.

  • Twip
  • Centimeters
  • Millimeters
  • Character (X)
  • Character (Y)
  • Pixel (X)

The Calculator Encyclopedia Converts Units of Sound

According to Wikipedia,

The decibel (symbol: dB) is a unit of measurement used to express the ratio of one value of a physical property to another on a logarithmic scale. It can be used to express a change in value (e.g., +1 dB or −1 dB) or an absolute value. In the latter case, it expresses the ratio of a value to a reference value; when used in this way, the decibel symbol should be appended with a suffix that indicates the reference value, or some other property. For example, if the reference value is 1 volt, then the suffix is “V” (e.g., “20 dBV”), and if the reference value is one milliwatt, then the suffix is “m” (e.g., “20 dBm”).

Also, according to Wikipedia,

The neper (symbol: Np) is a logarithmic unit for ratios of measurements of physical field and power quantities, such as gain and loss of electronic signals. The unit’s name is derived from the name of John Napier, the inventor of logarithms. As is the case for the decibel and bel, the neper is a unit defined in the international standard ISO 80000. It is not part of the International System of Units (SI), but is accepted for use alongside the SI.

The Calculator Encyclopedia Converts Radiation- Exposure Units in Radiology Unit Conversion

According to Wikipedia,

Radiation exposure is a measure of the ionization of air due to ionizing radiation from photons; that is, gamma rays and X-rays. It is defined as the electric charge freed by such radiation in a specified volume of air divided by the mass of that air.

The Calculator Encyclopedia Converts Units of Universal Fuel Economy

Nickzom Calculator converts 4 units in fuel economy such as:

  • US Miles per gallon
  • UK Miles per gallon
  • Kilometers per liter
  • Liters per 100 Kilometers

According to Wikipedia – Fuel Economy in Automobiles,

The fuel economy of an automobile relates distance traveled by a vehicle and the amount of fuel consumed. Consumption can be expressed in terms of volume of fuel to travel a distance, or the distance travelled per unit volume of fuel consumed. Since fuel consumption of vehicles is a significant factor in air pollution, and since importation of motor fuel can be a large part of a nation’s foreign trade, many countries impose requirements for fuel economy.

For the purpose of this post, let’s convert US Miles per gallon to Kilometers per liter.
