I fly a private jet to many parts of the world. The most tedious thing is converting simple Gallons / Pounds / Liters

Is there someone out there who could code a simple app where if one field is imputed, it would spit out the rest of the info?

Id like to be able to put in "1000Lbs" and have it come back with gallons/liters.

Or... 750gal, and have it come back with pounds/liters.

Or... 1800liters, and have it come back with pounds/gal

Simple conversions between the 3 units.

Thanks!

I'm confused. I assume you are talking about fuel? These conversions depend upon the material, so what is the conversion factor?

Yes, its regarding fuel...

here are the basics

1gal of jet fuel = 6.78 pounds

1gal of jet fuel = 3.785 liters

1liter = 0.264172052 US gallons

1 liter = 1.79636994 pounds

---
So working with these... I should be able to type into the app... "5000" (pounds)

The result should be 5000/6.78 = 737.5gal

Using that data, then liters should be derived from the 737.5 x 3.785 = 2791.4 liters
----

Example 2
---
I type in 2000liters into the app... 2000/3.785 = 528.4 gallons is the result as well as 528.4 x 6.78 = 3582.6 pounds

Doesnt work well on my EVO... one button is covered by the calculate button, and it forcecloses on me when I attempt to use. Please let me know if there is a way I can help with this.
