    Know your units

    - 16 January 2014

    Hi Jan,

    I found your site by googling how to find the amp rating of a double A battery… which led me to your other post about battery capacity. Excellent post by the way…

    I noticed that there weren't any comments on this one and I just wanted to say thanks for writing it. I think people get lost in advanced math because they make stupid addition, subtraction, multiplication or division errors And I think the same applies to a wide swatch of general engineering endeavors with respect to units.

    So thanks for the challenge to NOT be lazy!
