L=0.00291H -- you missed a zero.
btw, a scientific calculator makes life a lot easier -- and the Texas Instruments version can even talk to your DVM. (I am embarrassed to say that I use an HP41 which is over 20 years old.)

four decades ago when I took physics and calculus we had to do this stuff with a book of logarithms and a slide rule.

You should be proud, not embarassed! Not succumbing to the modern disposable mentality is one step closer to a sustainable existence. Plus old stuff is often the best

I have a not-so-old TI-86 myself, although I never use it anymore, instead preferring to use 'Virtual TI' (a TI calc emulator for Windows), since it is far faster than any real calculator.

Hey... the HP is RPN, i can't use those other silly calculators that aren't... i'd still be using my HP25C if it hadn't gotten left in an ex's glovebox.

My HP is virtual these days (althou i have a rarely used HP (maybe 15 years old) somewhere in the lab -- needs fresh batteries)

I can beat that. 1978 Casio fx-451 scientific calculator with Solar Cell - 27 years of calculation with zero batteries - and I have two of them!
