public abstract class CompoundUnit : Unit, 

The CompoundUnit type exposes the following members.

Protected methodCompoundUnitInitializes a new instance of the CompoundUnit class
Public propertyAppliesTo Gets the Type of measurement that this Unit applies to.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertyBaseFormat Gets the default format for displaying quantities of the unit.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertyConversions Provides the list of conversion factors for this Unit to the ConversionCache.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertyDimensions Gets the number of dimensions this Unit represents.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertyFirstUnit Gets the first Unit of the CompoundUnit.
Public propertyFirstUnitAppliesTo Gets the Type of Unit that is a legal value for FirstUnit.
Public propertyName Gets the name of the Unit.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertyNamePlural Gets the name of the Unit when it represents any quantity other than 1.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public propertySecondUnit Gets the second Unit of the CompoundUnit.
Public propertySecondUnitAppliesTo Gets the Type of Unit that is a legal value for SecondUnit.
Public propertySymbol Gets the symbol or abbreviation of the Unit.
(Inherited from Unit)
Protected methodCreateConversionList When implemented in derived classes, causes the Unit to assemble its list of conversion factors to other units.
(Inherited from Unit)
Public methodEquals(CompoundUnit) Indicates whether the current object is equal to another object of the same type.
Public methodEquals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current CompoundUnit.
(Overrides UnitEquals(Object))
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object)
Public methodGetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.
(Overrides UnitGetHashCode)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object)
Public methodToString Gets the String representation of this CompoundUnit.
(Overrides UnitToString)
This class is intended to solve the problem of how to represent units that are, in fact, collections of other units. For example, Pressure is measured in force (Mass) over Area, and either of the two constituents could easily vary independently of the other.
