I am conducting research on how to best represent a conversion of one
content item to another. Does anyone know of some good design
examples or websites that feature this type of switch? Could be
anything, currency, weight, metric, etc.

Thank you.

One of the most interesting (if not conventional) examples is
Convertbot, an iPhone app. Regardless of whether you find their
solution relevant, the description of their design process might be
very useful...

If I understand you correctly, you need examples of quantitative data
conversion? (The "content-item" part confused me, sounds like
eCommerce/product-related)
If you are looking for converters, the Yahoo Currency Converter is
pretty simple and intuitive to use:

Check out the ConvertBot iPhone App for a funky way to do it. (Demo
video recommended)
