Electrical / Electronics Conversions, Formulas & References

Throughout the years as an engineer, I have needed to research topics on engineering, physics, chemistry, mechanics, mathematics, etc. The Internet has made the job infinitely simpler, with the caveat that you have to be careful of your sources. Anyone can post anything on the Internet without peer review, and errors are rampant. The topics listed below are primarily ones that I have researched and generated custom pages for the content. I welcome visitor review and comments on my material to help ensure accuracy.

- NIST's Reference on Constants, Units & Uncertainty
- U.S. DoE vast resources
- ConvertIt website's scanned edition of the "Handbook of Mathematical Functions"
