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.

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.

  1. Create a user-defined unit called usermole, whose composition is molecule and Multiplier property is 6.0221e23.

    unitObj = sbiounit('usermole', 'molecule', 6.0221e23); 
  2. Add the unit to the user-defined library.


  3. Query the Multiplier property.

    get(unitObj, 'Multiplier')
    ans =
