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?

I see the same thing on my G2 with 2.1.14730 (20230413).
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/thread1817.html

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”).
