Default conversion chart?

I am looking for a chart that converts the different formats or tells me the focal length multiplier of the different formats so I can find their 35mm equivilent.

i.e. Micro 4/3 has a multiplier of 2x so a 25mm lens would be a 50mm lens in 35mm

1.6x for Canon models with an APS-C size sensor
1.5x for Nikon, Pentax, Samsung and Sony models with an APS-C size sensor
1.3x for Canon models with an APS-H size sensor
No multiplier for Canon, Nikon or Sony models with 35mm film size sensors
