1 cubic inch = 0.016387064 liters


thus what we call a 360 and a 5.9 are the same engine...

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYou are correct, but for me, 61 cu in per liter is a LOT easier to remember & deal with without a calculator.

;) I'm an engineer. I don't even calculate a tip without my calculator. :)

( when i was in college. we had an instructor that always would say 'check my math, I'm an engineer' if he did a calc in his head vs on a calculator. )

but yeah.. whichever way you want to run the calc from may be easier if you think in liters or cubic inches.

hte whole deal is fuzzy anyway as decimals are dropped and things are rounded... reminds me of my statistics class. Only math class I ever took that using the word 'about' in an answer could be / was correct nomenclature... :) hated that class.. :)

I liked the one the other day, where the statistician said that when asked to analyze a data set, the first thing he would ask is, what do you want the data to show? :cry:

JMOR, That sounds like a consultant, their first priority is to make sure their company gets paid. That's just part of the consulting business, it is taught during new employee orientation.

easiest math to decieve with. :) and still be telling the truth.

hide ranges as insignificant, or as data aberations..., focus in on a tiny segment of scale.. etc...
