How to Create a Unit Object with the grid Package in R

In this article, we are going to discuss how to create a unit object with a grid package in R programming language.

The unit describes the quantity of particular data present in a vector/dataframe/list. Here we will get data units in required formats using the unit() function. It is available in the grid package, thus it has to be imported to the workspace.

Syntax:

library(“grid”)

we can get the units by using unit() function



Syntax:

unit(data,”unit_name”)

where

  • data is the input data
  • unit_name is the type of unit

Given below are implementations for the same.

Example:  R program to create a vector with 15 values and display units in centimeter

R




# import grid package
library("grid")
  
# vector with 15 values
vec=c(1:15)
  
# display vector
print(vec)
  
# get the units in cm
print(unit(vec,"cm"))

Output:

Example: R program to get the units in inch

R




# import grid package
library("grid")
  
# vector with 15 values
vec=c(1:15)
  
# display vector
print(vec)
  
# get the units in inches
print(unit(vec,"inch"))

Output:
