CompositeUnitOfMeasure
Instances of this Class are UnitsOfMeasure defined by the functional composition of other units, each of which might be a CompositeUnitOfMeasure or a NonCompositeUnitOfMeasure.
Relationships      
Parents function quantity A FunctionQuantity is a PhysicalQuantity that is returned by a Function that maps from one or more instances of ConstantQuantity to another instance of ConstantQuantity. For example, the velocity of a particle would be represented by a FunctionQuantity relating values of time (which are instances of ConstantQuantity) to values of distance (also instances of ConstantQuantity). Note that all elements of the range of the Function corresponding to a FunctionQuantity have the same physical dimension as the FunctionQuantity itself.
  unit of measure A standard of measurement for some dimension. For example, the Meter is a UnitOfMeasure for the dimension of length, as is the Inch. There is no intrinsic property of a UnitOfMeasure that makes it primitive or fundamental, rather, a system of units (e.g. SystemeInternationalUnit) defines a set of orthogonal dimensions and assigns units for each.
Children UnitOfAreaEvery instance of this Class is a UnitOfMeasure that can be used with MeasureFn to form instances of AreaMeasure.
 UnitOfAtmosphericPressureUnitOfAtmosphericPressure includes those instances of UnitOfMeasure used to measure atmospheric pressure (barometricPressure), e.g., InchMercury.
 UnitOfFrequencyEvery instance of this Class is a UnitOfMeasure that can be used with MeasureFn to form instances of FrequencyMeasure.
 UnitOfVolumeEvery instance of this Class is a UnitOfMeasure that can be used with MeasureFn to form instances of VolumeMeasure.
