Does anyone know a good site to go to that has a U.S. measuring chart for inches to feet to yards, and ounces to lbs to tons and liquid measurements?

Try this one. It looks like it can convert just about anything.

Did you ever find a chart like you were looking for? Since we were gone much of 2005-2006, I'm still discovering old posts here and responding to them in an *un*timely fashion. Sorry. Your difficulty with this is part of why I'm a fan of metric. Your statement above assumes dry/weight measure where 16 (weight) oz. = 1 pound. However, 16 (liquid measure) oz. = 1 pint, which usually does not weigh 1 pound. The *only* crossover equivalence point is for fresh water, which is defined as having a specific gravity of 1.0 and therefore 1 pint of water weighs 1 pound. Thus, the old saying, "A pint's a pound the world around." But only for water at STP. Ick! Gimme metric any day of the week.

For math in general, I like the website http://www.cut-the-knot.org
