uh...1 calorie = 4.184 joules.  keep going with Newtons and all that...  at some point you will have to convert your lengths and masses from metric to standard.  IIRC, one Newton is approximately equal to .22 lb?

G-D dammit, I'm getting OLD! I used to know all that stuff when I was 17. Ah the good old days, we once used a parabolic mirror to set a 2X4 on fire! I also used it to burn a hole through my final AP biology paper! You should have seen the look on Mres. Maloney's face..."[i]What[/i] happened to it?" Then she rolled her eyes, I just smiled.
