The package Unit` grants an elegant method to work with units. It uses the definition of Mathematica standard packages Miscellaneous`Units`, Miscellaneous`SIUnits`, and Miscellaneous`PhysicalConstants` and expands its definitions to give:
  1. Compact typing and reading of units 5∘kg
  2. Unit transformation rules a
  3. Subscripts might be used as symbols
  4. Work with fundamental constants as with units
  5. Evaluation protection of units, so unit m in expression m=1; length=1∘m is treated correctly
  6. All results are presented in globally defined format which can be easily changed
