RE: Unit Calc / Conversion only in HP?
Hi,
the latest scientific calculators from Casio and TI such as the Casio FX 991ES PLUS or the TI36X can do unit conversions to a certain extent (i.e. it is possible to convert from base unit from one system to another, e.g. cm to inches or SI to imperial units, but they cannot be combined, e.g. no possible conversion from V/m to Ohms*A/inches). The Casio FX 5800P, which I also own, cannot do unit conversions as far as I am aware. Most graphical calculators can also do unit conversion to the level of the scientific ones, such as the TI83PLUS (via application), the TI85/86, etc., but not unit calculations. I suppose the Sharp models can do similar, but I do not possess any of them so I cannot confirm. The only calculators other than HP that I own that can do unit calculations are the TI89 and TI92 PLUS. The NSpire CAS models could probably do it, but I don't own any so again I cannot confirm. Hope this helped. Dalil
