The **Beaufort**-unit is given for a range of wind velocities, which are
measured at an altitude of 10 m above plain ground in open surroundings.
The scale is divided into 15 values.
Often all wind speeds faster than 11 Beaufort are grouped together to 12 Beaufort.
In this converter an input of Beaufort is not possible.

**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 a wind speed above 25 m/s.

The **Pitot-pressure**, 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.

**Usage:**
Type the wind speed you want to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit.
Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button.
Read the result in the other fields.
Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation.
Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.

**Example:**
You want to convert 50 km/h into mi/h.
Type "50" into the field in front of "km/h".
Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button.
Find your result in the field in front of
"mi/h" button (31.069 miles/h).
