This is one of the nicest most interesting pieces of spam that I have every seen posted to this newsgroup.

I'd rather see posts like this than those stupid "FS: 10 year old flight computer for $500".

I don't want to hurt my brain by scaling those numbers to a real-sized
glider just to see what the wing loading is.* Anyone care to do the
arithmetic?

Dan,

2.61oz/sqft equals to 0.163125 pound/sqft or 0.796446 kg/m^2

And you can just type "convert 2.61oz/sqft to pound/sqft" into Google search... always handy for things like this.

What is wrong with my math below?

203.8 sq.in. / 144 = 1.4153 sq.ft.

2.8 oz / 1.4153 sq.ft. = 1.9784 oz./sq.ft. (??? but this is not 2.61 oz./sq.ft.???)

1.9784 oz./sq.ft. / 16 = 0.12365 pound/sqft

My converter says 86g = 3.033563 us oz... or 2.76596 troy oz...

And that's why the metric system rules worldwide - except for some backwater countries. What a silly way to use your brain cells, maybe we have found the reason for our trade deficit...
