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 celsius2, whose composition refers to fahrenheit, Multiplier property is 9/5, and Offset property is 32.

    unitObj = sbiounit('celsius2','fahrenheit',9/5,32); 
  2. Add the unit to the user-defined library.


  3. Query the Offset property.

    get(unitObj, 'Offset')
    ans =
