Hey all, remember that thread about making a FundamentalSI function?
Well, I was using it and noticed that it had taken away the Mole
"unit" from some of my equations. I then tried:
Interestingly, the result is a number (a special one, obviously), not
an error. Mathematica is essentially treating mols as dimensionless
numbers, like Milli Kilo, etc. Personally, I think this behavior is
bad. What do you think?
