Units[Standard]

 eval
 evaluate at a point

Calling Sequence

 eval(expr, x = a) $\genfrac{}{}{0}{}{\mathrm{expr}}{\phantom{x=a}}|\genfrac{}{}{0}{}{\phantom{\mathrm{expr}}}{x=a}$ eval(expr, eqns)

Parameters

 expr - algebraic expression x - usually name, but may be general expression a - algebraic expression eqns - set or list of equations

Description

 • In the Standard Units environment, the eval function is overloaded to evaluate an expression after removing the units, and then combine the result with the units.
 • For other properties, see the global function eval.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Units}\left[\mathrm{Standard}\right]\right):$

The following defines velocity in terms of the acceleration_of_free_fall unit ($\mathrm{gn}$) and the variable height.

Notes:

 – To enter a unit in 2-D Math input, select the unit from the appropriate Units palette. If the unit you want is not there, select $\mathrm{unit}$ and then enter the unit.
 – When you edit a unit, double brackets appear around it.
 > $\mathrm{velocity}≔\mathrm{sqrt}\left(2\mathrm{Unit}\left('\mathrm{gn}'\right)\mathrm{height}\right)$
 ${\mathrm{velocity}}{≔}\sqrt{{2}}{}\sqrt{{\mathrm{height}}}{}⟦\sqrt{{\mathrm{gn}}}⟧$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{eval}\left(\mathrm{velocity},\mathrm{height}=3\mathrm{Unit}\left('\mathrm{ft}'\right)\right)$
