Specify Mev/nuc instead of MeV as particle energy


I would like to know how to deal with the spectrum of particles heavier than protons. These spectra are often formulated as function of energy in MeV/nucleon instead of MeV. I was wondering if it is possible to use these units in the formula I use for the spectrum, or if I have to manually convert from MeV


Not sure to understand your request. MeV/nuc is not an unit in geant4. You have to compute by hand : energyPerNuc = totalKineticEnergy/A;
Of course, you can fill an histogram with energyPerNuc if you have booked it coherently.
