List of conversion formulas?

Is there a page here at onlinconversion.com that lists the formulas for the various conversions? Or does anyone know of a fairly complete site that has such a list??

There isn't much of a formula. Just a conversion factor.

(from unit) x (conversion factor) = (to unit)

You can find the conversion factor by entering 1 in the "convert from" field.

The exception would be the temperature conversion which does require a formula.

It is very unlikely that you will find a list of all the factors. With the large number of different units there would be hundreds of thousands of different possible combinations of conversion factors.

A inch-pound of torque is the twisting force necessary to support a one pound weight on a weightless horizontal bar, one inch from the fulcrum.
