Usage :
Type the wind velocity you want to convert into the field, behind which you find the
the unit. Click on the corresponding button and read the results in the other
fields. Use the "delete" button to delete your calculation.
Example: You want to convert 50 km/h into mi/h. Type "50" into
the field in front of the button "km/h". Click on the "km/h" button. Find your result
in the field in front of the "mi/h" button (31.069 miles/h).
Remarks:
The Beaufortunit is given for a range of wind velocities, which are
measured at an altitude of 10 m above plain ground in open surroundings.
In this converter no input is possible. The scale is divided into 15 values.
Often all wind speeds faster than 11 Beaufort are grouped together to
12 Beaufort.
Windchill is the sensible temperature, dependent on the temperature
of the air and the wind speed. The calculation only makes sense at low
temperatures. You can change the temperature in the corresponding field.
However, the calculation is controvers since very often very low
temperatures are the result. There is no calculation at wind speed above 25 m/s.
The Pitotpressure, as measured for example with a Pitot anemometer,
is dependent on the density of air. The default value at 1013.25 hPa
and 0°C is ρ=1.2923 kg m^{3}. The value for the density of air
might be changed for the calculation.
 All results have been rounded to 5 significant digits.
 Large and small numbers are written exponentially. As example
2.3e5 = 2.3⋅10^{5} = 230000 or
4.5e5 = 4.5⋅10^{5} = 0.000045.
 There is no warranty for the conversion. Cactus2000 is not
responsible for damage of any kind caused by wrong results.
