Get Units - Maple Help

Units

 GetUnits
 list all unit names

 Calling Sequence GetUnits(opts)

Parameters

 opts - (optional) equation(s) of the form option=value where option is one of 'context', 'dimension', 'energy', or 'name'; specify options of the units

Description

 • The GetUnits() function returns an expression sequence of all unit name and context pairs.
 • You can restrict the list by describing the options of the units by using the optional arguments.  The opts argument can contain one or more of the following equations.
 'context'=symbol
 This option specifies the context of returned units.
 'dimension'=algebraic
 This option specifies the required dimension for the returned units. It must be an expression that can be converted to a product of powers of base dimensions.
 'energy'=truefalse
 This option specifies whether energy conversions are used to determine the equality of a given dimension.  See Energy Conversions.
 This option can be used only with the 'dimension' option.
 'name'=symbol
 This option specifies that the units listed must have names or symbols that can be represented by the given name or symbol.
