In this module, you will learn about mathematical symbols and their use. We will then look at different international units of measurement and standard prefixes. Lastly, we will look at how to round numbers.
This module builds on the knowledge previously learnt in modules one and two, and applies it to an oilfield setting. First we look at capacities in the oil and gas industry, then the different types of pressure that can be encountered in downhole situations, and finally some of the different forces that may be applied, including string weights and buoyancy forces.
The aim of this module is to teach you about the following subjects:
Mathematical symbols and notations
How to use prefixes
International units of measurement
Rounding up and rounding down
