public static interface Dimension.Model

This interface represents the mapping between base units and dimensions. Custom models may allow conversions not possible using the standard model. For example:[code] public static void main(String[] args) { Dimension.Model relativistic = new Dimension.Model() { RationalConverter meterToSecond = new RationalConverter(1, 299792458); // 1/c public Dimension getDimension(BaseUnit unit) { if (unit.equals(SI.METER)) return Dimension.TIME; return Dimension.Model.STANDARD.getDimension(unit); } public UnitConverter getTransform(BaseUnit unit) { if (unit.equals(SI.METER)) return meterToSecond; return Dimension.Model.STANDARD.getTransform(unit); }}; Dimension.setModel(relativistic); // Converts 1.0 GeV (energy) to kg (mass). System.out.println(Unit.valueOf("GeV").getConverterTo(KILOGRAM).convert(1.0)); } > 1.7826617302520883E-27[/code]


Field Summary
static Dimension.Model STANDARD
          Holds the standard model (default).
 
Method Summary
 Dimension getDimension(BaseUnit<?> unit)
          Returns the dimension of the specified base unit (a dimension particular to the base unit if the base unit is not recognized).

Method Detail

getDimension

Dimension getDimension(BaseUnit<?> unit)
Returns the dimension of the specified base unit (a dimension particular to the base unit if the base unit is not recognized).

Parameters:
unit - the base unit for which the dimension is returned.
Returns:
the dimension of the specified unit.

getTransform
