Facilitates working with physical quantities.
This is a work in progress; this package's API may change significantly.
Some parts are currently unfinished, untested and/or undocumented. Use at your own risk.
// Import the core library import 'package:quantity/quantity_si.dart'; // Construct an Angle in radians var ang = new Angle(rad: 1.1); // Construct an Angle in degrees var ang2 = new Angle(deg: 270); // Find the difference var diff = ang2 - ang; // Display the result in degrees print(diff.valueInUnits(Angle.degrees);
- Typed quantities (such as
Temperature) that are easy to construct and use in calculations.
- Encourages use of standard units by isolating non-standard units in an extension library.
- Support for relative standard uncertainty in quantity values and calculations.
- Allows use of arbitrary precision values (as well as complex and imaginary values).
- Provides access to the latest official constant values published by NIST.
- Integration with Dart's existing
- Extensive set of quantity types and standard and non-standard units.
- Support for untyped quantities having unusual dimensions with the
- Models quantity ranges, including special support for angle ranges and time spans.
- Includes a mutable quantity with streams.
- Metric prefixes for any unit.
- Quantity types, units and constants commonly encountered in the field of Astronomy and related sciences.
- Quantity types, units and constants commonly encountered in the fields dealing with electromagnetics.
The quantity package accepts both Dart's
numtypes and the
Numbers defined by this number library as quantity values and for quantity operations. [...]
- A superset of all the other libraries available in the quantity package. [...]
- Extends the core library with non-SI units, constants, unit synonyms to enable terse constructors and expressions, and auxiliary functions.
- Models ranges of quantites with start and end values (not necessarily increasing). [...]
- The core library containing the fundamental quantity classes and types consistent with the International System of Units (SI, in the French acronym).
- Quantity types, units and constants commonly encountered in the field of thermodynamics and related sciences.
- Quantity types and constants with universal application.
