This handy and free utility quickly converts almost every unit of measurement under the sun into other units. Quad-Lock Unit Converter is not just small, but it’s also time-efficient, as no installation is required other than clicking on the EXE file. When determining conversions, you first select from a long list of subjects, including ones for area, charge, temperature, mass, density, and thermal conductance. If you don’t regularly work with, say, viscosity, you can remove it from the main window. You then choose your source and desired units, such as feet to centimeters. After that, you simply type in a specific number, and this application will convert it to your desired unit in mere seconds. Quad-Lock Unit Converter also provides quick access to a scientific calculator, but that’s about the only extra you’ll find. Whether you’re a scientist working out complex equations or a traveler who’s baffled by the metric system, this freebie can help you out of a bind.
WHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 5.4
* Added ability to perform coordinate transformations from latitude/longitude to UTM (and vice-versa). * Added Heat Flux conversion category with 25 units * Added Magnetic Flux conversion category with 14 units * Added Volumetric Heat Generation category with 11 units * Added 6 new units to Fuel Consumption category (non-linear conversions such as Liters/100km to Miles/Gallon) * Corrected conversion factor in Amount of Substance; 1 mol = 1000 mmol, showed 1000000 mmol * Re-organized main menu. Also, added an icon next to each menu item. * Quad-Lock Converter now uses Unicode for the entire program (UI controls and the engine), enabling internationalization. * Removed restrictions such that users can now add an un-limited number of custom units and categories. Furthermore, users can also add non-multiplicative unit conversions (such as from Liters/100km to Miles/Gallon) * Changed location of UnitConverter.ini (preferences file) to the %APPDATA%\UnitConverter folder or, if running from a removable drive, to the removable drive’s root folder (e.g. F:\UnitConverter.ini). * User defined custom categories can now be rendered visible or invisible in the main window using Main Menu > Edit > Preferences * The conversion engine now uses a hash table to efficiently map unit names to associated conversion factors. This should improve speed on old and obsolete computers (the difference may not be noticeable on fast modern computers).
Unit Converter is a freeware tool that can take care of all your unit conversions even when offline. It has an easy-to-use interface and contains most of the units commonly encountered while solving engineering problems. With more than 900 units, you are likely to find the units you are looking for. Other features include the ability to quickly search for units and categories, and add user-defined conversions. Everything is built into a single executable file so no uninstaller is necessary. Its small file size makes it easy to distribute among friends and co-workers.
Version 5.4 adds ability to perform coordinate transformations from latitude/longitude to UTM (and vice-versa).
What are the 3 types of software?
--Computers are managed by software. Software may be divided into three categories: system, utility, and application.
What is the difference between download and install?
--The act of "downloading" a file is distinct from "installing" it. Instructions to utilize the downloaded data to modify your computer are "installing" the file. The file does not alter or be updated if installation is not performed.
What is software used for?
--Software is a collection of instructions, data, or computer programs used to run machines and carry out certain activities. It is the antithesis of hardware which refers to a computer external components. A device running programs, scripts, and applications are collectively referred to as "software" in this context.
