Parts-per Notation Units

Description

This package contains units used to describe dimensionless quantities for small values. These are pseudo-units because they are actually “quantity-per-quantity.” They provide a number without an associated unit.

The package contains the following entities:

  • Seven units of Dimension Scalar:
    • parts-per-thousand: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • parts-per-ten-thousand: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • per-cent-mille: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • parts-per-million: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • parts-per-billion: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • parts-per-trillion: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.
    • parts-per-quadrillion: unit of Dimension Scalar. This unit is a value expression based on percent (%) unit.

How to use the package

These units can be used for custom fields of type quantity or for test results of type quantity.
