Unit conversion | R Documentation |
This function takes a number in some specified units and converts that number to SI units,
or from SI units to the specified units.
Internally, all ctmm
objects are specified in SI units, and so this is a utility function to facilitate working with ctmm
objects.
x %#% y
x |
A numeric quantity specified in |
y |
A unit character label for the quantity |
If x
is a number and y
is a character unit label, then x

to SI units. If x

is a number, then y
is converted from SI units to units x
.
The default non-SI units include the mean solar 'day'

and mean tropical 'year'
. These defaults can be changed to conventional calendar units via options(time.units='calendar')
