BioSimSpace.Types.Volume

class BioSimSpace.Types.Volume(*args)

A volume type.

__init__(*args)

Constructor.

*args can be a magnitude and unit, or a string representation of the volume, e.g. “100 pm^3”.

Parameters
  • magnitude (float) – The magnitude.

  • unit (str) – The unit.

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

Examples

Create an object representing a volume of 100 cube nanometers then print the volume in cube Angstrom.

>>> import BioSimSpace as BSS
>>> volume = BSS.Types.Volume(100, "nm^3")
>>> print(volume.angstroms3())

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

>>> import BioSimSpace as BSS
>>> volume = BSS.Types.Volume("100 nm^3")
>>> print(volume.angstroms3())

The string matching is extremeley flexible, so all of the following would be valid arguments: “100 nm^3”, “100 cube nanometers”, “100 nanometers cubed”.
