Hey MATLAB users,
I'm trying to show a numerical value with its unit in the command window. For example, 500 grams or 4.7k Ohms. Any suggestions?
Quick replies are much appreciated, thanks.

How are the units stored? Do you have a separate string or cell array of strings?

w = 500 ;
R = 4.7 ;
fprintf('%f grams or %f k Ohms',w,R)
