Usage

calc_factor_prefix(from, to)

Arguments

from

A string containing the prefixed unit A.

to

Details

Convert, e.g. "kg" to "µg". You can convert ".g", ".l", ".mol", ".m^3" (cubic metres), where "." symbolizes a metric prefix:

For g, l and mol: d (deci), c (centi), m (milli), µ (micro), n (nano), p (pico) and f (femto).

For g you might use k (kilo) as well.

For m^3 (cubic metres) you may only use: d (deci), c (centi) and m (milli).

Value

A factor for multiplication with the value.
