sbioshowunits

Show units in library

Syntax

unitObjs = sbioshowunits
[Name, Composition] = sbioshowunits
[Name, Composition, Multiplier] = sbioshowunits
[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset] = sbioshowunits
[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset, Builtin] = sbioshowunits
[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset, Builtin] = sbioshowunits('Name')

Arguments

unitObjs

Vector of unit objects from the BuiltInLibrary and UserDefinedLibrary properties of the Root object.

Name

Name of the built-in or user-defined unit.

Composition

Shows the combination of base and derived units that defines the unit Name. For example, molarity is mole/liter.

Multiplier

The numerical value that defines the relationship between the unit Name and the base or derived unit as a product of the Multiplier and the base unit or derived unit. For example, 1 mole is 6.0221e23*molecule. The Multiplier is 6.0221e23.

Offset

Numerical value by which the unit composition is modified from the base unit. For example, °Celsius = (5/9)*(°Fahrenheit-32); Multiplier is 5/9 and Offset is –32.

BuiltinAn array of logical values. If Builtin is true for a unit, the unit is built in. If Builtin is false for a unit, the unit is user defined.

Description

unitObjs = sbioshowunits returns the units in the library to unitObjs as a vector of unit objects.

[Name, Composition] = sbioshowunits returns the composition for each unit in Name to Composition as a cell array of strings.

[Name, Composition, Multiplier] = sbioshowunits returns the multiplier for the unit with name Name to Multiplier.

[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset] = sbioshowunits returns the offset for the unit with name Name to Offset. The unit is defined as Multiplier*Composition+Offset.

[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset, Builtin] = sbioshowunits returns whether the unit is built in or user defined for each unit in Name to Builtin.

[Name, Composition, Multiplier, Offset, Builtin] = sbioshowunits('Name') returns the name, composition, multiplier, offset and built-in status for the unit with name Name. Name can be a cell array of strings.

Examples

[name, composition] = sbioshowunits;
[name, composition] = sbioshowunits('molecule');
