  1. 1. CHM 111 Dimensional Analysis Unit 1 Math Skills Toolbox Useful Conversions: 4 qts = 1 gal; 0.946 L = 1 qt; 1 mile = 5280 ft; 1 ft = 30.5 cm 39.4 in = 1 m; 1 lb = 0.454 kg 1 in = 2.54 cm, 1 m = 102 cm 1 m = 1012 pm; 1 m = 106 µm; 1 m = 109 nm; 1 km = 103 m 1 mL = 1 cm3; (1 “angstrom”) = 1 Å = 10−10 m 1010 Å = 1 m Please note that METRIC conversions will NOT be given on exams or quizzes, including temperature conversions between C and K. 1. a) Convert 150 miles to cm. Remember to express your answer with the correct number of significant figures. Note that there are multiple ways (routes) to solve this problem. b) Briefly justify whether or not your answer seems reasonable. 2. a) Convert 341.0 pm to feet. Remember to express your answer with the correct number of significant figures. Note that there are multiple ways (routes) to solve this problem. b) Briefly justify whether or not your answer seems reasonable. 3. a) Convert 12.1 gallons to cm3. Remember to express your answer with the correct number of significant figures. Note that there are multiple ways (routes) to solve this problem. b) Briefly justify whether or not your answer seems reasonable. 4.
