Units Conversion - Convection Coefficient

New user here.

Is there a built-in unit conversion calculator in Algor?

I am looking for a conversion of Convection Coefficient
from in·lbf/(s·°F·in^2) Aglor nomenclature to BTU/(s·in^2F) SolidWorks nomenclature

Well I walked away from the problem to take care of other business and when I came back I realized the denominator is the same so I simply need to convert in·lbf to Btu but it would be nice if there was a simple conversion calculator built into Algor. If it is there, I haven't found it. Edited by: JDMather on Mar 15, 2010 5:22 PM
