Inverse Affine Temperature Units

Inverse Affine Temperature Units

The Mathcad 15 unary operators /°F and /°C are actually implemented in Mathcad Prime.  If you convert a Mathcad 15 worksheet to Prime, those operators are converted properly and work.  However, typing them in is a royal pain.  They should both be on the Units drop-down tool bar.

These operators are needed to strip units off of variables for:

  1. clear and concise use on plot markers
  2. providing unitless values to built-in and custom functions that require a certain temperature unit (°F or °C)
  3. quickly comparing values with affine units to equivalent values with no units from other sources

Recommendation: Put the inverse affine unit labels on the Units toolbar and mention them in the on-line help.
