 Current Topic:Has anybody heard of a unit called snail? Great explaination ogata, except for a small (but very important typo):1 slug = lb-sec^2/ft1 snail = lb-sec^2/inso,[lb-sec^2/ft][ft/(12*in)] = lb-sec^2/in[lb-sec^2/ft] = [lb-sec^2/in][12*in/ft]1 slug = 12 snailsand conversely1 snail = 1/12 slugsThis is the reverse of what you have written (it only took 7 years for someone to catch this error).It should also be noted that in some circles this unit is called a "blob".  Aside form the typo, great reply!
