Description

Somehow the base dimension list for EML has 'charge' as a fundamental dimension
instead of 'current'. THis is wrong, and should be fixed. See the NIST site
for details. http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/units.html

'Charge' should be a derived unit that is equal to ampere*second which is the
definition of a coulomb.

History

#1 Updated by ben leinfelder about 14 years ago

with this change, some of the other derived units get shuffled around a bit (at least in terms of their time coefficient).
is the link listed here the trusted resource to use for basing the other units from (tesla, henry, weber, etc...).
the files affected are:
eml/eml-unitDictionary.xml
eml/stmml.xsd
