Other Units

Description

 • The following units are in the Units package.

 Name Symbols Context Alternate Spellings Prefixes brewster standard * brewsters SI talbot standard * talbots lumberg standard * lumbergs strontium_unit standard * strontium_units dozen standard part_per_billion ppb EU parts_per_billion US part_per_million ppm standard parts_per_million

 An asterisk ( * ) indicates the default context, an at sign (@) indicates an abbreviation, and under the prefixes column, SI indicates that the unit takes all SI prefixes, IEC indicates that the unit takes IEC prefixes, and SI+ and SI- indicate that the unit takes only positive and negative SI prefixes, respectively.  Refer to a unit in the Units package by indexing the name or symbol with the context, for example, brewster[standard]; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, brewster.
 The units are defined as follows.
 A brewster has the dimension length time squared per mass. It is defined as a square micrometer per newton.
 A talbot has the dimension luminous flux time. It is defined as a lumen second.  It is also known as a lumberg.
 A strontium unit has the dimension inverse time mass. It is defined as $37$ becquerels per kilogram.
