func (*Speed) Set

func (sp *Speed) Set(s string) error

Set sets the Speed to the value represented by s. Units are to be provided in "mps"(meters per second), "m/s", "kph", "fps", or "mph" with an optional SI prefix: "p", "n", "u", "µ", "m", "k", "M", "G" or "T".

Example
package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"log"

	"periph.io/x/conn/v3/physic"
)

func main() {
	var s physic.Speed

	if err := s.Set("10m/s"); err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	fmt.Println(s)

	if err := s.Set("100kph"); err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	fmt.Println(s)

	if err := s.Set("2067fps"); err != nil {

	}
	fmt.Println(s)

	if err := s.Set("55mph"); err != nil {
