What About Metric?

What About Metric?

Date: October 1976
Creator: Barbrow, Louis E. & Halpin, Suellen
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards discussing the reasons that the U.S. decided passed the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 and provides tables, illustrations, and formulas for converting between customary units and metric units of measuring weight, length, volume, and temperature. It also includes a discussion of how one might expect to use metric measurements in the marketplace, in the home, and at work.

Brief History of Measurement Systems: with a Chart of the Modernized Metric System

Brief History of Measurement Systems: with a Chart of the Modernized Metric System

Date: August 1976
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards providing an overview of the English system of measurement used in the United States and of the metric system. The internal pages of the pamphlet contain a chart labeled "The Modernized Metric System" which includes tables of common conversions and a chart of the seven base units: meter/length, kilogram/mass, second/time, ampere/electric current, kelvin/temperature, mole/amount of substance, and candela/luminous intensity, as well as two supplementary units: radian/plane angle and steradian/solid angle. There is also a graphic representation of yards versus meters in ruler form at the bottom.

The Dynamics of Fields of Higher Spin

The Dynamics of Fields of Higher Spin

Date: August 1976
Creator: Hayward, Raymond W.
Description: Report presenting a relativistic theory of motion that is free of many of the difficulties common in relativistic equations of motion. This Lagrangian theory describes fields and particles with arbitrary mass and charge and having any discrete spin, integer or half integer.

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

Date: July 1976
Creator: Meggers, William F.
Description: Report continuing W. K. Meggers' previous analysis in LS-coupling. This coupling is not rigorous in Hf I, and many intervals are irregular. Consequently, the levels are given also in numerical order with the even and odd levels presented in separate tables. The long line lists are given in two Appendices: Appendix A contains the observed Zeeman data for the individual lines, 531 in all; Appendix B consists of the complete line list of observed and classified lines. By far the greater part of the analysis is that of Meggers.

Automatic Measurement of Network Parameters: A Survey

Automatic Measurement of Network Parameters: A Survey

Date: June 1976
Creator: Beatty, Robert William
Description: Report issued by the Bureau of Standards over a survey conducted on measurement methods of network parameters. As stated in the introduction, "this paper is concerned with the development of automatic methods of measuring basically the magnitudes and phase differences, or the complex ratio of two sinusoidal voltages, and applications of this capability to determining complex reflection coefficients and transmission coefficients and group delay times of electrical networks" (p. 1). This report includes tables, and illustrations.

[United States National Bureau of Standards Metric Conversion Card]

Date: May 1976
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Conversion card issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards containing conversion information for length, area, mass (weight), volume, and temperature (exact). The front lists "Approximate Conversions to Metric Measures" and includes a continuum of temperatures at the bottom and a centimeter ruler along the right side (to 8 cm.). The back of the card lists "Approximate Conversions from Metric Measures" and includes an inch ruler along the right side (to 3 in.).

America Joins a Metric World

Date: February 1976
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards discussing the Metric Conversion Act of 1975, the work of the U.S. Metric Board, and how government agencies are facilitating a switch to the metric system.

An approximate spin design criterion for monoplanes, 1 May 1939

An approximate spin design criterion for monoplanes, 1 May 1939

Date: January 1, 1976
Creator: Seidman, O.
Description: An approximate empirical criterion, based on the projected side area and the mass distribution of the airplane, was formulated. The British results were analyzed and applied to American designs. A simpler design criterion, based solely on the type and the dimensions of the tail, was developed; it is useful in a rapid estimation of whether a new design is likely to comply with the minimum requirements for safety in spinning.
