Is it possible to set a default set of units for output?
I've just discovered the joys of units and
Quantity. Ideally, I'd like to be able to tell Mathematica to always convert to SI units. I'm aware I could
UnitConvert every entry, but that's not what I'm after: I want to set and forget. Is this possible, and if so, how?
Digging around the docs is making me think the answer is "No, it isn't", which is disappointing.
This is not the same as setting the units to default in metric. My default is metric. However, Mathematica will keep things in pre-defined quantities if I use them. As an arbitrary example, consider below:
$Unitsystem mass = 10 Quantity["SolarMass"] inertia = 2/5 mass
The output of this is
Metric Quantity[10, "SolarMass"] Quantity[400, ("Meters")^2 "SolarMass"]
i.e. it does not convert from solar mass units, even though my unit system is metric. I could explicitly tell it to convert every line, but that's what I'm trying to avoid.
