Great web site!

It would even be better if, you would show how you did the
conversion and maybe interesting data about the topic.

Thanks

PS I've booked marked this one!

    I agree with Steve.  As my teachers used to say, "show your work!"  This is a great site with a lot of useful information, but it would be very helpful to see the formula used, the conversion factor or rate, etc.

    I am a reference librarian and I often get asked these types of questions.  Students (and parents) want more than just the answer though, they want to know HOW to get the answer.  

    Thanks for all of the work on the site, it's a great resource!

gotta agree! Sometimes it would be nice to know what the conversion factors are! Also, doing tiny numbers like 1*10^-6 is hard cos the conversion factor doesn't recognise the 10^-6 part!

You can enter scientific notation by using the letter e instead of the ^ symbol.

For example:
1.5e-5
Would be:
0.000015

I have been tossing around ideas for showing the work, just haven't implemented anything yet. You can get around this by just converting 1, which will give you the conversion factor. You can use that for showing your work.
