Asking questions are in fact good thing if you are not understanding something completely,
however this article offers pleasant understanding yet.

Fully airconditioned, 2 bath furnished townhouse in Denia, 2 bed, 3 min stroll to the
Marina & beach where you'll uncover many stores, cafes and restaurants.
The townhouse is just a terrace residence having a really Spanish feel to
it, bar/dining location that includes a record burner and veranda doors which steer out towards the straightforward maintenance yard, fully-fitted home, outside power room,
British & Spanish Television, Dvdplayer & video player and parking right outside.

Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of
us have developed some nice methods and we are looking to trade strategies with others,
why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

Quoting Carl:
Hi
Thank you for providing the Ponderal index calculator, just a quick comment to say that the units in the weight should be kg (kg with a small case "k" and not Kg).

Technically, the units used for weight should be Newtons (N). The quantity should be mass instead of weight if we want to use kilograms.

Do you have plans for making a ponderal index calculator for children shorter than 4'11"? Or if this calculator doesn't apply to children at all, then one for children specifically?
Quote
#5 Morten Z 2010-09-24 22:40
Paul -> yes, that is the formula. We will very soon update this calculator with the option to use imperial units. (Why couldn't we not just all agree to use SI-units ;-)
Quote
#4 paul 2010-09-24 06:29
Formula: like density: mass divided by volume (height x height x height)

The Index is for international units. For imperial units and other local units like stones and handwidth you need to translate them.

Try searching "pondural" instead of "ponderal." I don't know why this is, but there seems to be a spelling change between the literature and lay use.

Hello Morten
I want to know why there are no article references on the topic, ponderal index?
