Long Overdue Correction Identified
by S. Bruce King

Back in August 2002, our newsletter had a technical discussion about vapor pressures and the units of measure used to report the vapor pressure of a substance.  At the end of the article the author, S. Bruce King, gave a list of conversion factors to convert from set of units to another.  Also provided was a table that gave vapor pressures and their values for different measurement units. View this original article here.

A mistake was identified by, Ronald B. Crosier of SBCCOM, who recognized that I had used the conversion factor for centimeters of water rather than for inches of water.

I have redone the table, which is shown below.  My thanks to Ronald and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone.
