BioSimSpace.Units

The Units package provides a set of common physical units required by BioSimSpace. This provides convenient, short-hand access to BioSimSpace.Types.

Some examples:

import BioSimSpace as BSS

# Create a length of 14.3 Angstrom.
length = BSS.Types.Length(14.3, "Angstrom") # Long-winded way.
length = 14.3*BSS.Units.Length.angstrom     # Simplified way.

# Create an area by multiplying two lengths.
area = 3.6*BSS.Units.Length.nanometer * 12*BSS.Units.Length.angstrom

# Create a time of 100 milliseconds.
time = 100*BSS.Units.Time.millisecond
