This is a great tool that I haven't seen posted yet for instant conversions. I know it helped me a lot with the IRC NRC-CNRC wall construction comparisons. Sorry if there is one and I haven't seen it yet...there is an awful lot of scattered info on this site.

Tom, thanks for that - I'm sure a lot of our members will appreciate the link.

One you can't get from the calculator, because it doesn't do mass conversion; insulation density - to convert pounds per cubic foot into kG per cubic meter; multiply by 16 (this is actually 16.04, but close enough for this purpose; so 3 PCF would = 48 kG/cu M... Steve

I rather like the calculator feature that is built-in on Google. :) Just type "5 inches to cm" into the Google search form from its home page (or, if you have the Google search bar installed on your browser, just type it in there), and you get an instant answer.

No software to install. 8)

the mentioned software doesn't have to be "installed". It's only 1 executable, very quick and handy dandy. Quicker than online calcs for sure :)
