Default Calculating Driver Air Mass Load ( Mmr )

Hi everyone,
I am using this formula to calculate Mmr: 0.575 x Sd ^1.5

I took this formula from V. Dickason book and in it there is a table showing the Mmr for a given Sd; for example: for Sd=0.0165 square meters, Mmr=1.2 grams.

But if I calculate: (0.0165 ^1.5) x 0.575 , the result is 0,0012.

What am I missing?

I have not boutght Dickason's book, so I am unfamiliar with the formula.

However, it appears that you are off by a factor of a thousand.

Perhaps the answer is given in kilograms instead of grams? Just guessing.
