Prime Unit Conversion
On the beta version, in viscosity, (m^2)/s and St conversion attempts to P both produce an inconsistent units error

RE: Prime Unit Conversion
They are different units. One is kinematic viscosity and one is dynamic viscosity. Maybe they will add a kg/(m.s) choice to the list in a future release.

edit: lbm/(ft.hr) and ft^2/s would also be nice

You can convert between P (poise) and Pa·s (pascal·second): 1 P = 0.1 Pa·s

For example, CONVERT(15_P, 1_Pa*s) returns 1.5_Pa*s

RE: Prime Unit Conversion
On my beta 13011 version OS, I only have a viscosity choice of (m^2)/s, St, and P (choices 4,7,8 no other options are shown)

RE: Prime Unit Conversion
You must enter it yourself, convert(15_P,1_Pa*s), P, Pa and s are available, so you enter the first part until 1_Pa, go back into the brackets and key in *s. For me that works and is the usual way I use to convert to combined units.
