HP Prime Bug: Convert lbf to N
Convert lbf to N uses 4.449221615 N / lbf instead of 4.448221615.
The third digit following the decimal should be 8 instead of 9.
Can this be corrected?

RE: HP Prime Bug: Convert lbf to N
I see the same thing on my G2 with 2.1.14730 (2023-04-13).

The iOS emulator 2.1.14584 (2021 05 05) and the PC emulator 2.1.14730 (2023 04 13) have the correct value (4.44822161526_N).

Edit: I cross posted your findings in https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-1817.html

Thanks for the report! I’ve created a ticket for this in the bug tracker I’ve set up for the project.

I’ll message Prof. Parisse about this in a moment. Using Google to search for 4.44922161526 actually turns up a web page with an mksa value table for Xcas.

One workaround is to use the all caps “CONVERT” (instead of the lowercase “convert”).

A follow-up: the ticket on the bug tracker has been closed, the bug has been fixed. Big Grin (Thanks, Prof. Parisse! Big Grin) The change should be in effect with the next release.
