Relates a RatioUnit such as meter(s)/second to the numerator Unit (e.g. meter).
Relates a RatioUnit such as meters/second to the denominator Unit (e.g. second).
The standard symbol for the unit in HTML format for pretty printing, may use special characters. E.g. to show square meter as m? rather than m^2, the value of this property would be "" This is for when Unicode not supported and the display will be HTML format.
The standard symbol for the unit preferred for pretty printing, may use special characters. E.g. square meter would be m? rather than m^2.
The standard symbol for the unit NOT using any special characters. E.g. square meter would be m^2 rather than m?.
A unit to measure amounts of digital information.
Data Size Unit
Unit of measurement for expressing temperature. Per SI, the base of temperature is in Kelvin, to allow for all units to be expressed relative to a real (in this case absolute) zero.
Temperature Unit
The measure of brightness. The SI unit is the candela.
Luminous Intensity Unit
Unit of electrical current, which is charge per unit time. The SI unit is the ampere. (Note that electrical current is a composed unit.)
Electrical Current Unit
Amount of chemical material. Measured in Avogadro units (moles) of 6.02 x 10^23 molecules.
Mole Unit
A unit of counting, especially ?each?, but also units such as dozens.
Counting Unit
A unit of money. Note: this is the only unit whose conversion factors include time (i.e., the conversion rates change on a daily basis).
Currency Unit
A UnitOfMeasure composed of a numerator unit and a denominator unit.

Ratio Unit
EXAMPLE: Miles per hour.
NOTE: If needed, a conversion factor for a RatioUnit can be (recursively) derived from the conversion factors of the numerator and denominator units. E.g., the derived conversion factor from km/minute to meters/second is 1000/60 or 16 2/3.
