Thus 35 g per square meter is 35/10.7639104 = 3.251606 g per square foot, which is 3251.606 g per 1000 square feet. Then I typed 3251.606 grams to pounds into Google and the response was 3 251.606 grams = 7.16856414 pounds. Hence 35 gm per square meter is 7.17 pounds per 1000 square feet. Penny
Sue added: Hi guys. I didn't know about that! Pretty neat. I tried it with just one query: 35 grams per square meter to pounds per 1000 square feet and it said (35 grams) per (square meter) = 7.16856503 pounds per (1 000 (square feet)).Stephen La Rocque. >
