Re: Anyone using the Units package extensively?


I've been using an enhanced version package combining units and physical
constants for several years. I started off wanting things like a symbol hbar
that would only turn into the numerical value PlanckConstant when I applied
N to an expression. The latest version includes registration of symbols in a
database that allows you to do automatic dimension checking of expressions.

It can be downloaded from

The notebook implementing the package contains examples. The choice of
physical constants is oriented towards the ones used in my field but could
easily be adapted.
