Sorry for my unaccurate way of explaining how to convert on the 49. R.D. Bärtschiger did a better job,and it was close to what i meant. I read the first chapter of Mike’s mail d.d 03-01-2000,that state's how to convert on the 48. I performed it on the 49,and it work's. And need’s a few keystroke’s less then Bärtschiger’s methode.
This is how i did it. Let's see how many gram there are in one kilogram. The calc has the stack (RPN mode) menu active now. Calc is in RPN.
1: press right-shift than units. Press next and choose mass,F1. 2: press Kg,F1. The beep sounds and the box 'Error Too Few Arguments' appears on the screen. Just press on/cancel and the box disappears, leaving 1._kg on the stack. 3: press left-shift,then choose g from the menu,F2. Kg is now converted to grams
To convert 2 Kg to g:
1: press right-shift than units. Then press next and choose mass,F1. 2: press 2 than Kg,F1. 3: press left-shift than g,F2 (gram). It say's 2000._g on the stack.
