For example, the quantity kind of length may be measured by units of meters, kilometers, or feet. Full quote QuantityKind is defined as a non-abstract SysML Block defined in the SysML UnitAndQuantityKind model library. Next snippet QuantityKind, or a specialization of it, classifies an InstanceSpecification to define a particular "kind-of-quantity" in the sense of an "aspect common to mutually comparable quantities" [VIM3-1.2], ... Related snippets SysML ValueType adds an ability to carry a unit of measure and quantity kind associated with the value. A quantity kind is a kind of quantity that may be stated in terms of defined units, but does not restrict the selection of a unit to state the value. A unit is a particular value in terms of which a quantity of the same quantity kind may be expressed. quantityKind : InstanceSpecification [0..1] A kind of quantity, represented by an InstanceSpecification classified by a kind of SysML QuantityKind, that may be stated by means of units. A value type may optionally specify a quantity kind without any unit. unit : InstanceSpecification [0..1] A unit, represented by an InstanceSpecification classified by a kind of SysML Unit, in terms of which the magnitudes of other quantities that have the same quantity kind can be stated. A QuantityKind is a kind of quantity that may be stated by means of defined units. For example, the quantity kind of length may be measured by units of meters, kilometers, or feet.

The definitionURI of an InstanceSpecification classified by a kind of QuantityKind identifies the particular "kind-of-quantity" [VIM3-1.2] that the InstanceSpecification represents. The definitionURI of an InstanceSpecification classified by a kind of QuantityKind identifies the particular "kind-of-quantity" [VIM3-1.2] that the InstanceSpecification represents. Two such InstanceSpecifications represent the same "kind-of-quantity" if and only if their definitionURIs have values and their values are equal. Two such InstanceSpecifications represent the same "kind-of-quantity" if and only if their definitionURIs have values and their values are equal. The only valid use of a QuantityKind instance is to be referenced by the quantityKind property of a ValueType or Unit.

A Unit is a quantity in terms of which the magnitudes of other quantities that have the same quantity kind can be stated. A Unit is a quantity in terms of which the magnitudes of other quantities that have the same quantity kind can be stated. A unit often relies on precise and reproducible ways to measure the unit. For example, a unit of length such as meter may be specified as a multiple of a particular wavelength of light. A unit often relies on precise and reproducible ways to measure the unit. For example, a unit of length such as meter may be specified as a multiple of a particular wavelength of light. A unit may also specify less stable or precise ways to express some value, such as a cost expressed in some currency, or a severity rating measured by a numerical scale.
