Magnitude is a library for computing with numbers with units:

>>> print "10 m/s ** 2 ->", mg(10, 'm/s') ** 2
10 m/s ** 2 -> 100.0000 m2 / s2
>>> print (mg(10, 'm') * 2 / (10, 'm/s2')).sqrt()
1.4142 s
>>> tsq = mg(10, 'm') * 2 / (10, 'm/s2')
>>> print tsq ** 0.5
1.4142 s
>>> print mg(1, "lightyear") / mg(1, "c")
>>> 31557600.0000 s
>>> y = mg(1, "lightyear") / (1, "c")
>>> y.ounit("year")
<magnitude.magnitude instance at 0x81440>
>>> print y
1.0000 year
>>> yd = y.ounit('day')
>>> print yd
365.2500 day
>>> output_precision(0)
>>> print yd
365 day
