Unit conversion of a list of quantities
Posted:

I have the following lists: Edep = {4.9491200000000017`*^14 Joules, 1.8669264000000004`*^14 Joules, 6.223088000000001`*^15 Joules} mass = {0.043937500000000004` g, 0.06987` g, 0.02329` g}
I want to calculate dose: dose = Edep/mass
I get another list (of Quantities):
{(1.1264*10^12 Joules)/g, (2.672*10^13 Joules)/g, ( 2.672*10^13 Joules)/g}
OK, but I want to have Grays, ie. Joules/kg:
UnitConvert[dose, "Joules/kg"]
Unfortunately output is not what I want: {UnitConvert[(1.1264*10^12 Joules)/g, "Joules/kg"], UnitConvert[(2.672*10^13 Joules)/g, "Joules/kg"], UnitConvert[(2.672*10^13 Joules)/g, "Joules/kg"]}
How to get Mathematica to convert J/g to J/kg? Mathematica 9.0.1 on linux.
