The units may not have names but they are related to one another in an SI
For example if I was to model my 1983 Holden VH Commodore (A typical
student car in Australia) in ODE:
ODE Mass 1 (tonne)
ODE length 4.5 (meters)
ODE Motor Power 300 (newton/m)
That would not behave like my car!
Someone who is familiar with ODE should put together a 'Suggested Units'
list as this question comes up often..
It would be the best way to make the unit relationships clear.
