Units

 GetSystem
 list units in a system of units

 Calling Sequence GetSystem(system)

Parameters

 system - symbol; system name

Description

 • The function GetSystem(system) returns all units in a system of units.
 • For an existing system system, the call AddSystem(system, GetSystem(system)) recreates an equivalent system. The calling sequence AddSystem(system, check, GetSystem(system), new_unit) redefines the system by including new_unit and ensuring that new_unit does not have the same dimension as any of the existing units in system.

Add the ampere to the MKS system of units and rename it the MKSA system.

If infolevel is set to a greater integer (possible settings are 1 through 5), more detailed information about the computation method is displayed.
