These functions simplify scaling between different metric prefixes.

scale_metric(q, prefix = "")

best_metric(q)

base_metric(q)

## Arguments

q the quantity to scale a metric prefix (p, n, µ, m, k, M, etc.)

## Functions

• 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 microbialkitchen (i.e. to mol, L, etc.)

Other quantity functions: check_quantities, make_qty_units_explicit(), quantities, quantity_data, quantity_units
