How can I get MathCAD to show flux density in units of Guass

How can I get MathCAD to show flux density in units of Guass

How can I get MathCAD to show flux density in units of Guass

(OP)
I typed in the equation for flux density using cm^2 for the core area and the other units are Volts, Turns and time.
I expect mathCAD to give my answer in either Tesla or Guass.
The answer which it gives is 10^4 times what it should be (if the answer were in Guass) but it doesn't give units.  
How can I make MathCAD display the answer in Guass?

Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

RE: How can I get MathCAD to show flux density in units of Guass

Sounds like you have a "T" on the left hand side somewhere (short for turns maybe?).  This would cancel the unit tesla and make the result dimensionless.

If not, it probably would be best for you to post a worksheet.

What do you want us to do with a picture?  Are we supposed to type in stuff that you've already typed in?

OK, try again.  Select the last equation in the result portion.  A black placeholder rectangle appears to the right of the T. Type a G into that placeholder.

Why do you have a 10^8 in the equation?  Mathcad understands units, so there should not be any conversion values

And if you get rid of the 10^8, you get 583.3G.  Is that the right answer?

IR, Thanks for the help.
My mistake was in working with cgs units. The 10^8 is the common formula when working in cgs units but MathCAD works in MKS so this isn't needed; just type in the numbers. Double clicking to the right of the "T" opens the dialog box to replace units with Guass instead of Tesla.
