On selecting Petroleum, a bunch of links to major topics in Petroleum Engineering is displayed. Scroll down to Well Logging and click on it.

According to Wikipedia,

Well logging, also known as borehole logging is the practice of making a detailed record (a well log) of the geologic formations penetrated by a borehole. The log may be based either on visual inspection of samples brought to the surface (geological logs) or on physical measurements made by instruments lowered into the hole(geophysical logs).

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.

 

Nickzom Calculator+ (Professional Version) – The Calculator Encyclopedia converts the units of sounds and at the moment, it converts three of them which are:

Nickzom Calculator Solves Molar Concentration in Chemistry

According to Wikipedia,

Molar concentration (also called molarityamount concentration or substance concentration) is a measure of the concentration of a chemical species, in particular of a solute in a solution, in terms of amount of substance per unit volume of solution. In chemistry, the most commonly used unit for molarity is the number of moles per litre, having the unit symbol mol/L. A solution with a concentration of 1 mol/L is said to be 1 molar, commonly designated as 1 M.

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.
