Examples

This example shows you how to create a user-defined unit prefix, add it to the user-defined library, and query the Exponent property.

  1. Create a unit prefix.

    unitprefixObj1 = sbiounitprefix('peta', 15);
    
  2. Add the unit prefix to the user-defined library.

    sbioaddtolibrary(unitprefixObj1);
    
  3. Query the Exponent property.

    get(unitprefixObj1, 'Exponent')
    
    ans =
    
        15
