Physics 1xx Laboratories - Web Assign Units on WebAssign Many numerical-entry questions require units to be entered after the number. Some aspects of this can be confusing. When do I enter units? Units are required any time the answer is a quantity that has units (like velocity or angle) AND the units are not shown next to the answer box. If the units are shown, you must make sure that your submission is correct using those units. If the units are not shown, you need to enter the units following your number. How do I enter units? Type one space between the number and the units, and then enter the units in the correct format. For example, a velocity would be entered as "1.2 m/s", not "1.2m/s". Will my submission be marked wrong if I enter the wrong units? It depends. If you have entered the wrong type of units, such as meters (or m) when the answer requires velocity (m/s), then you will see an error message indicating that the wrong type of units have been entered. This means you have a chance to fix the units and try again, if you have a submission left.
