Google Calculator

Ever need to run a quick calculation? How about a conversion? Recently I wanted to know how many pounds was equivalent to .92kg. So, I entered into a google, ".92kg to pounds" expecting to be provided a conversion web site. Instead I got the answer: .92 kilograms = 2.02825281 pounds and a link to More about calculator. I had to check that out so I browsed the link.

To use Google's built-in calculator function, simply enter the calculation you'd like done into the search box and hit the Enter key or click on the Google Search button. The calculator can solve math problems involving basic arithmetic, more complicated math, units of measure and conversions, and physical constants. Try one of the sample expressions below, or refer to our complete instructions for help in building your own.
If you check out the complete instructions, you get another page with plenty of examples. Is there anything that google does not do? It's amazing that I find something new at Google on an almost daily basis. LewisC
