Relationship between defined unit and base unit
The Multiplier is the numerical value that defines the relationship between the unit Name and the base unit as a product of the Multiplier and the base unit. For example, in °Celsius = (5/9)*(°Fahrenheit-32); Multiplier is 5/9 and Offset is -32. For 1 mole = 6.0221e23*molecule, the Multiplier is 6.0221e23.
|Applies to||Object: Unit|
Nonzero real number. Default value is 1.
This example shows how to create a user-defined unit, add it to the user-defined library, and query the library.
Create a user-defined unit called usermole, whose composition is molecule and Multiplier property is 6.0221e23.
unitObj = sbiounit('usermole', 'molecule', 6.0221e23);
Add the unit to the user-defined library.
Query the Multiplier property.
get(unitObj, 'Multiplier') ans = 1/molarity*second
