When you solve a problem and it wants the answer in non-SI units and they given you non-SI units, do you need to convert the non-SI units to SI units before you plug them into equations such as x=1/2gt^2. If you don't convert them into SI units, you'll get the answer wrong right?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically, all the units need to math up in order for you to get the right answer?
