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, debye[standard] or D[standard]; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, debye or D.

  

 

  

The unit of electric dipole moment is defined as follows.

  

A debye is defined as 1.10-18 statcoulomb second or 1.10-21c coulomb second where c is the magnitude of the speed of light, and is energy-equivalent to 1.10-18 square root dyne square centimeter (sqrt(dyne)*cm^2).
