Switch to a Different Unit System


Switch from one unit system (for example, SI) to another (for example, FPS). By default, Maple uses the SI unit system.

Load the Units[Standard] package.


Switch to another unit system. Maple recognizes Atomic, CGS, EMU, ESU, FPS, MKS, MTS and SI.


Specify an expression using values with different units. Maple returns the dimensioned results in the units of the new unit system.
