Suppose I wish to use Boltzmann constant in calculations, and I queried it from Wolfram Alpha:

enter image description here

Now, how to take any of selected values?

If I copy paste

enter image description here

I get garbage. How to perform?

  • $\begingroup$ Hover the mouse over the value of choice, the little window drops down, click on the orange A in that which has alt text saying "copyable plain text", click on that and scrape and paste elsewhere $\endgroup$ – Bill Feb 22 '15 at 18:22
  • $\begingroup$ {WolframAlpha["boltzmann constant", {{"Value", 1}, "NumberData"}], WolframAlpha["boltzmann constant", {{"Value", 2}, "NumberData"}], WolframAlpha["boltzmann constant", {{"Value", 3}, "NumberData"}], WolframAlpha["boltzmann constant", {{"Value", 4}, "NumberData"}]} Choose the appropriate units $\endgroup$ – Sektor Feb 22 '15 at 18:35
  • $\begingroup$ Table[WolframAlpha["Boltzmann constant", {{"Value", n}, "ComputableData"}], {n, 4}] $\endgroup$ – Bob Hanlon Feb 22 '15 at 20:01
  • $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it relates to Wolfram Alpha, not Mathematica. $\endgroup$ – bbgodfrey Feb 22 '15 at 23:30

Better to use the free-form input interface rather than the Wolfram | Alpha interface for this kind of thing.


Quantity[1.38065*10^-23, ("Kilograms" ("Meters")^2)/("Kelvins" ("Seconds")^2)]
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, but what if I want to extract value namely from WA answer? $\endgroup$ – Dims Feb 23 '15 at 5:37
