In this very simple example if I write R+iwL where R is measured in Ohms, w in s^-1, L in H, I expect that the result is given in Ohms. Why it doesn't happen in Mathematica ? Ho can I do to handle in a simple way those conversions ? Thanks Hi, Theodoro, I do it this way, simple enough: In:= R := x*Ohm; w := z*Hz; L := y*H; H = Ohm/Hz; R + w*L // Simplify Out= Ohm (x + y z) -- Alexei Boulbitch, Dr., habil.
