tools for dealing with physical quantities: uncertainty propagation and unit conversion
MetroloPy is a pure python package and requires Python 3 and the SciPy stack (NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, and IPython). It looks best in a Jupyter Notebook.
Install MetroloPy with pip:
$ pip install metrolopy
Physical quantities can then be represented in Python as
gummy objects with an uncertainty and (or) a unit:
>>> import metrolopy as uc >>> a = uc.gummy(1.2345,u=0.0234,unit='cm') >>> a 1.234(23) cm >>> b = uc.gummy(3.034,u=0.174,unit='mm') >>> f = uc.gummy(uc.UniformDist(center=0.9345,half_width=0.096),unit='N') >>> p = f/(a*b) >>> p 2.50(21) N/cm2 >>> p.unit = 'kPa' >>> p.uunit = '%' >>> p 25.0 kPa ± 8.5%
MetroloPy can do much more including Monte-Carlo uncertainty propagation, generating uncertainty budget tables, and curve fitting. It can also handle expanded uncertainties, degrees of freedom, correlated quantities, and complex valued quantities. See:
