quantity
Facilitates working with physical quantities such as angles, lengths, masses and temperatures.
In science and engineering it is critical to use units along with numerical values. For example, 5 meters per second is decidedly not the same speed as 5 feet per minute. Calculations must include units, implicitly or explicitly, to be correct and useful. This package provides classes for modeling quantities of specific types and their associated units as well as their use in calculations.
The International System of Units
(often called 'SI' from its abbreviation in French) defines the quantity types, associated
units and constants used by scientists and engineers around the world. This package models
the SI base and derived quantities in its quantity_si
library.
There are also many historical units, of course, that were around well before the SI came into existence.
These can be found in the quantity_ext
library.
The number
library adds support for quantities having values of arbitrary precision and the
quantity_range
library adds special support for handling value ranges.
Together, these libraries give you the tools to maintain units discipline in your code and make Dart a more attractive option for many science and engineering applications by eliminating common mistakes and offering improved readability.
Quick start
// 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);
Key Features
 Typed quantities (such as
Length
,Mass
andTemperature
) that are easy to construct and use in calculations.  Encourages use of standard units by isolating nonstandard 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
Duration
andDateTime
classes.  Extensive set of quantity types and standard and nonstandard units.
 Support for untyped quantities having unusual dimensions with the
MiscQuantity
class.  Models quantity ranges, including special support for angle ranges and time spans.
 Includes a mutable quantity with streams.
 Metric prefixes for any unit.
