Zip file is attached.
I was working some simple calculations and I could not get the units for "fiu" to come out correctly.
Since this is for a spring, the units should be "lb/in". But instead, MathCAD keeps populating with "lb/s^2".
I have re-worked it several times and still get the same incorrect units in MathCAD.
Not sure what I am doing wrong?
Your help is appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
lb is a Mathcad unit of mass (like kg)
lbf is "one pound force"
Wow. Thank you. Can't believe I missed that.
I appreciate the prompt response.
Your formulas are working perfectly...you just need to ask for "lbf/in" and you will get 10483.126 as the numeric value. The unit "lb" is for mass and "lbf" represents force.
Cheers
