Caution: The following hints have not yet been adapted to the current version of the program!
- You may write a numerical value and a permissible unit into the free-form field. Alternatively, the unit may be selected from the selector box. The numerical value may be omitted (default is 1).
- You may select the "wanted" unit from the selector box. Alternatively, a permissible "wanted" unit (US name) may be written into the free-form field (usually, no numerical value).
- Numerical value
- unsigned integer or decimal number. A power of ten may be appended by suffixing "+" or "-" and the exponent. "|" denotes a fraction. The numbers "pi" and "mole" are predefined. Examples:
- 3+6 (3 millions)
- 1-3 (1 thousandth)
- 1|3 (1 third)
- You may choose the international symbol or the US name, case is observed. Note: "h" denotes the Planck constant, "hr" is equivalent to "hour". "g" is equivalent to "gram", whereas "grav" (or "force") denotes the gravitational acceleration. "mol" denotes the SI unit, whereas "mole" (or "Mol") is numerically equal to Avogadro's number ("NA").
- Basic units are separated by "-" or spaces, division is indicated by "/", powers by suffixed positive integers. Example:
- m2 (= square meters)
- m2-kg/s2 (= joule, SI unit J)
- Erroneous symbols in the output
- in the "conformability" output, negative exponents are
incorrectly displayed; the meanings are as follows:
/ to the -1
. to the -2
- to the -3
, to the -4
+ to the -5
