A calculation utility program for Mac or Windows, designed to answer questions written as equations made up of numbers, units (a unit is a quantity in terms of which the magnitudes of other quantities of the same type can be stated), precision, and operators. For example: How many acres are in a field that measures 1.2 miles by 80 feet pm 1 foot? UnitMath's answer: 1.2 mile * (80 feet pm foot) as acres is approx. (11.01 to 12.27) acres. Examples include rainfall, amount of Earth's air, geosynchronous orbit, perfect water temperature, pyramids with 4 sides, spherical tank volume, tire pressure, and global extremes.
