Btw, I learned this in my Machining class.
25.4mm = 2.54cm= 0.0254 meters
25mm = 2.5cm = 0.025 meters
Study up on significant figures if interested.

At UIUC, g=9.81 m/s^2
At EIU, they use 9.8 and I was wondering what happened to the precision.

If you don't go to the 5th decimal point when using Pi in your calculations, ugghhh. LOL

3.14 makes me sick.
