These functions simplify converting between different metric prefixes.

scale_metric(q, prefix = "") best_metric(q) base_metric(q)

q | the quantity to scale |
---|---|

prefix | a metric prefix (p, n, µ, m, k, M, etc.) |

`scale_metric`

: scale to a specific metrix prefix (from whatever the quantity is currently in)`best_metric`

: convert to best metric prefix (i.e. one that gives at least 1 significant digit before the decimal), if the quantity has a vector of values, scales to the best metric prefix for the median of all values`base_metric`

: convert to base metric prefix of mediachemtools (i.e. to mol, L, etc.)

Other quantity functions: `quantities`
