Calculation with temperature unities

Try to compute some simple computations using temperatures.

They are not working.


Q = K * A * (T2-T1) / L

K=60.5 W/m*(°C)

A=285 mm^2



L=500 mm

The core of SMath Studio evaluates operands in base units; for temperatures, the base unit is Kelvin ('K). Since °C has a shift respect to K, the conversion lead to a 1/274.15 factor in your function. To deal with it SMath has “delta“ units. If you use a 'Δ°C on the denominator of the variable named K (in replacement of '°C) it should works as expected. Since the numerator involves a difference it doesn't need further fixes.
