Unit of Density Gradient
Dear friends,

I got the Density Gradient in Tecplot360.

Could you tell me the Unit of Density Gradient?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Unit of Density Gradient
It should depend on the units of your density field and mesh coordinates.

Re: Unit of Density Gradient
Thank you.

I use the Unit kg/m^3 for the density, and Cartesian coordinate system.

Re: Unit of Density Gradient
The gradient dimension is going to be (units of density)/(units of length). As nobody said - it depends on the units you are using. A cartesian grid system could have length units of meters, inches or parsecs. You should be able to figure this out.
