**Additional Information** The purpose of this calculator is to see how the measure of a *unit drink* OR *unit of alcohol* OR *standard drink* (or whatever else it might be called) compares between two countries. Thus, by selecting UK and USA, we can find that 1 *unit drink* in the UK is equivalent to 0**.**564 (just over half) of a *standard drink* in the USA. Or, by selecting USA and UK, that 1 *standard drink* in the USA is equivalent to 1**.**77 (about one and three-quarters) *unit drinks* in the UK. Equivalent means that the two contain the same amount of alcohol.
*There are calculators for finding the number of alcohol units contained in various sizes of measures either in***different countries** *OR* **the UK ONLY** |
| This calculator deals with 16 different countries having 11 different *standards*. An overview of this situation, and why these differences exist is given in the *General Notes* Other than changing the countries by selecting from the two drop-down menus it is also possible to put a value in the first box (from 0**.**1 to 100) and click on [Calculate It]. All values are given to 3 significant figures (which is more than adequate for all this work) but unvalued zeros are not shown.
*There is a separate calculator for finding***the %AbV** |
