Energy (in^2 lbm/sec^2)
Length (in)
Density (lbm/in^3)
Angle (deg)
Mass (lbm)
Velocity (in/sec)
Moment of Inertia (in^2 lbm)
Rotational Velocity (deg/sec)
Area (in^2)
Acceleration (in/sec^2)
Volume (in^3)
Rotational Acceleration (deg/sec^2)
Translational Stiffness (lbm/sec^2)
Force (in lbm/sec^2)
Rotational Stiffness (in^2 lbm/(sec^2 deg)
Torque (in^2 lbm/sec^2)
