BioSimSpace.Types.Temperature

class BioSimSpace.Types.Temperature(*args)

A temperature type.

__init__(*args)

Constructor.

*args can be a magnitude and unit, or a string representation of the temperature, e.g. “298 K”.

Parameters
  • magnitude (float) – The magnitude.

  • unit (str) – The unit.

  • string (str) – A string representation of the temperature.

Examples

Create an object representing a temperature of 298 Kelvin then print the temperature in Celsius.

>>> import BioSimSpace as BSS
>>> temperature = BSS.Types.Temperature(298, "K")
>>> print(temperature.celsius())

The same as above, except passing a string representation of the temperature to the constructor.

>>> import BioSimSpace as BSS
>>> time = BSS.Types.Temperature("298 K")
>>> print(temperature.celsius())

The string matching is extremeley flexible, so all of the following would be valid arguments: “298 K”, “298 kelvin”, “2.98e2 k”.
