Units of Dose Equivalent Description

 • Dose equivalence has the dimension dose equivalent radioactive energy per mass. The SI derived unit of dose equivalence is the sievert, which is defined as a joule of dose equivalent radiation per kilogram.
 • Maple knows the units of dose equivalent listed in the following table.

 Name Symbols Context Alternate Spellings Prefixes sievert Sv SI * sieverts SI rem rem radiation * rems SI

 An asterisk ( * ) indicates the default context, an at sign (@) indicates an abbreviation, and under the prefixes column, SI indicates that the unit takes all SI prefixes, IEC indicates that the unit takes IEC prefixes, and SI+ and SI- indicate that the unit takes only positive and negative SI prefixes, respectively.  Refer to a unit in the Units package by indexing the name or symbol with the context, for example, rem[radiation] or Sv[SI]; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, rem or Sv.
 The unit of dose equivalent is defined as follows.
 A rem is defined as $\frac{1}{100}$ sievert. Examples

 > $\mathrm{convert}\left('\mathrm{sievert}','\mathrm{dimensions}','\mathrm{base}'=\mathrm{true}\right)$
 $\frac{{{\mathrm{length}}{}\left({\mathrm{dose_equivalent_index}}\right)}^{{2}}{}{\mathrm{mass}}{}\left({\mathrm{dose_equivalent_index}}\right)}{{\mathrm{mass}}{}{{\mathrm{time}}{}\left({\mathrm{dose_equivalent_index}}\right)}^{{2}}}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{convert}\left(1,'\mathrm{units}','\mathrm{Sv}','\mathrm{rem}'\right)$
 ${100}$ (2)
