This book provides a handy and convenient source of formulas, conversion factors and constants for the student as well as the professional. An extensive collection of the fundamental tools of mathematics, constantly needed in every area of the physical sciences and engineering, has been compiled. The International System of Units of measurement (SI) is given in detail and convenient tables for conversion between different units have been included. As a manual in the laboratory and for problem-solving a collection of frequently needed data and constants is given. Formulas and tables have been amended by examples in all of those cases where their use might not be self-explanatory. For the second edition, a chapter on "Error Analysis" as well as an Index for easy entry have been added.
