If you need to use constants with units in an expression, do the following:
The following only applies to Tedds for Word.
The beam x has a fixed length 14.5 m, and is subdivided into a variable number of equal spacings, s.
Do not write the calculation as follows:
s = 10
x = 14.5 m/s = ? *
* In the above expression, Tedds for Word considers m/s as the unit meters per second, and not the intended calculation (14.5 m divided by 10 spacings).
To ensure that Tedds for Word performs the calculations as you intend, place the constant and its unit within brackets as follows:
s = 10
x = (14.5 m) / s = 1.45 m = ?
When the revised expression is calculated, it gives the correct answer:
x = (14.5 m) / s = 1,45 m
