Units of Linear Mass Density

Description

 • Linear mass density has the dimension mass per length. The SI composite unit of linear mass density is the kilogram per meter.
 • Maple knows the units of linear mass density listed in the following table.

 Name Symbols Context Alternate Spellings Prefixes denier standard * deniers drex standard * drexes tex standard * texes

 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, denier[standard]; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, denier.
 The units of linear mass density are defined as follows.
 A denier is defined as a gram per $9000$ meters of thread.
 A drex is defined as a gram per $10000.$ meters of thread.
 A tex is defined as a gram per $1000$ meters of thread.
