Equalities and Inequalities in the Natural Units Environment Description

 • In the Natural Units environment, the equality and inequality operators (=, <, <=, >, >=, and <>) are modified so that they perform the necessary operations on expressions with units.
 • The properties of the five arithmetic operations are:

$Aa=Bb->A=rB$

$AaA

$Aa<=Bb->A<=rB$

$Aa>Bb->A>rB$

$Aa>=Bb->A>=rB$

$Aa<>Bb->A<>rB$

 where a and b are units; A and B are coefficients; and r is the conversion factor from the unit $b$ to the unit a.
