Mobile Friendly: The new interface automatically adjusts for optimal use on a tablet or a smartphone; use the converter anytime, anywhere you have an internet connection!

Saves Time: New features eliminate the use of preliminary calculations. The Input Value can be numerals or a combination of numerals, mathematical operators and functions. The value will be calculated automatically. This reduces the number of steps and helps save time.

Improved Functionality: Unlike most unit converters, Knovel's new Unit Converter allows users to create custom units by selecting and combining the over 1,000 unit measurements available in the library.

The Unit Converter is easy to share with friends and colleagues and provides one click access to additional Knovel tools.
