Allow calculations using physical quantities
PhysicalQuantities is a Python module that allows calculations to be aware of physical units. Built-in unit conversion ensures that calculations will result in the correct unit.
- The main goals are:
- easy use, especially conversion, scaling and interoperating with different units
- focus on using units for engineering tasks
- provide logarithmic dB calculations
- allow seamless Numpy array operation
The module also contains an extension for IPython. This allows much simplified usage by typing in physical quantities as number and unit:
>>> a = 1m ; b = 1s >>> print("a=", a, ", b=",b,", a/b=", a/b) a= 1 m , b= 1 s , a/b= 1.0 m/s >>> u = 10V >>> u.dB >>> 20.0 dBV
