convacc

Convert from acceleration units to desired acceleration units

Syntax

convertedValues = convacc(valuesToConvert, inputAccelUnits, outputAccelUnits)

Description

convertedValues = convacc(valuesToConvert, inputAccelUnits, outputAccelUnits) computes the conversion factor from specified input acceleration units to specified output acceleration units. It then applies the conversion factor to the input to produce the output in the desired units.

Input Arguments

valuesToConvert

Floating-point array of size m-by-n values that the function is to convert. All values must have the same unit conversions from inputAccelUnits to outputAccelUnits.

inputAccelUnits

Specified input acceleration units, as strings. Supported unit strings are:

'ft/s^2'Feet per second squared
'm/s^2'Meters per second squared
'km/s^2'Kilometers per second squared
'in/s^2'Inches per second squared
'km/h-s'Kilometers per hour per second
'mph/s'Miles per hour per second
'G''s'g-units

outputAccelUnits

Specified output acceleration units, as strings. Supported unit strings are:

'ft/s^2'Feet per second squared
'm/s^2'Meters per second squared
'km/s^2'Kilometers per second squared
'in/s^2'Inches per second squared
'km/h-s'Kilometers per hour per second
'mph/s'Miles per hour per second
'G''s'g-units

Output Arguments

convertedValues

Floating-point array of size m-by-n values that the function has converted.

Examples

Convert three accelerations from feet per second squared to meters per second squared:

a = convacc([3 10 20],'ft/s^2','m/s^2')

a =

    0.9144    3.0480    6.0960
