Question:How to get SI units and an engineering type of result

Maple

Hello, Currently when I calculate something, for example R=U/A where R is resistance, U is voltage and A is current, I get the answer in Volt/Ampere in stead of ohm. How do I change that?

Then, if the result is something like 3.124*10^-4 , how do I make maple output this in an engineering way, this would be 10^3, 10^6, 10^9 etc. to begin with?

Sorry if I formulate this wrongly, English is not my first language and I could not find an answer to this after some research.

Thank you

UPDATE and solution: for future reference:

You don't need to type out the whole unit like this:

1.0*Unit(volt)/(2000.0*Unit(ampere));

in stead you can do this:

(1.0*V)/(2000.0*A);

I got the V and A from the SI Units palette on the left hand side,

To answer my own question about the engineering notation, this can be "forced" by clicking on "Format" -> "Numeric Formating..." -> Engineering and then choosing the number of decimals. apply and set as default. After you are going to have to copy and recalculate your math as the !!! wont do it.
