Physics is a quantitative science, based on measurement of physical quantities. Certain physical quantities have been chosen as fundamental or base quantities. The fundamental quantities that are chosen are Length, Mass, Time, electric current, thermodynamic temperature, amount of substance, and luminous intensity. Each base quantity is defined in terms of a certain basic arbitrarily chosenbut properly standardised reference standard called unit such as metre,kilogram,second,ampere,kelvin,mole,and candela. The units for the fundamental base quantities are called fundamental or base units and two supplementary units in relation to quantities plane angle and solid angle radian, Ste radian..

For the most recent values of these constantly improving units, see Constants of Physics. The symbols of various units are international. This, however, is not true about the names of the units. In particular, UK English uses the French spelling. Consequently, the US terms meter , gram and liter become, respectively, metre , gramm and litre in the British Commonwealth.

## Physics Symbols

Physicists, like other scientists, make observations and ask basic questions. For example, how big is an object? How much mass does it have? How far did it travel? To answer these questions, they make measurements with various instruments e.

Standards and Units: Laws of physics are expressed in terms of physical quantities such as time, force, temperature, density and numerous other parameters. Physical quantities are often divided into fundamental and derived quantities. Derived quantities arc those whose definitions are based on other physical quantities, e. Fundamental quantities are not defined of other physical quantities, e. A scalar quantities is one which has only magnitude.

As we saw previously, the range of objects and phenomena studied in physics is immense. From the incredibly short lifetime of a nucleus to the age of Earth, from the tiny sizes of subnuclear particles to the vast distance to the edges of the known universe, from the force exerted by a jumping flea to the force between Earth and the Sun, there are enough factors of 10 to challenge the imagination of even the most experienced scientist. Giving numerical values for physical quantities and equations for physical principles allows us to understand nature much more deeply than qualitative descriptions alone. To comprehend these vast ranges, we must also have accepted units in which to express them. We shall find that even in the potentially mundane discussion of meters, kilograms, and seconds, a profound simplicity of nature appears: all physical quantities can be expressed as combinations of only seven base physical quantities.

The chances are that any scientific measurement or quantity will be measured using SI Units - the International System of Units. There are many standard abbreviations and symbols used with these quantities. The SI, System International units, symbols and abbreviations are well defined and documented and provide the basis for the way most scientific quantities as well as many others are quoted and measured. The SI unit symbols for quantities such as current, voltage and the like, are very common, and within electrical or electronic circles. However when an unfamiliar unit symbol is first used within a paper or other document, it should be followed by its name in parentheses.

To explain the natural phenomena we take the help of physics. Physics enable us to understand logically as well as mathematically all natural phenomena. All the laws of physics are generally expressed in terms of Physical Quantities. As an example, if you go to school or college from your home by walk, you need to know your speed and time. If you start to go at AM and reach at 10 AM, you spend 30 minutes by walk.

This is a list of physical quantities. The first table lists the base quantities used in the International System of Units to define the physical dimension of physical quantities for dimensional analysis. The second table lists the derived physical quantities. Derived quantities can be mentioned in terms of the base quantities. Note that neither the names nor the symbols used for the physical quantities are international standards.

Он посмотрел еще внимательнее. Да, он сумел прочитать эти слова, и их смысл был предельно ясен. Прочитав их, Беккер прокрутил в памяти все события последних двенадцати часов. Комната в отеле Альфонсо XIII. Тучный немец, помахавший у него под носом рукой и сказавший на ломаном английском: Проваливай и умри. - С вами все в порядке? - спросила девушка, заметив, что он переменился в лице. Беккер не мог оторвать глаз от ее руки.

Сьюзан, это Дэвид. Я тебя разбудил. Она улыбнулась и поудобнее устроилась в постели. - Ты мне только что приснился. Приходи поиграть. - На улице еще темно, - засмеялся. - А-ах, - сладко потянулась .

Сам удивишься.

Щелчок взведенного курка. - Adids, - прошептал человек и бросился на него подобно пантере. Раздался выстрел, мелькнуло что-то красное. Но это была не кровь. Что-то другое.

Знать ничего не знаю.

ГЛАВА 76 У подъезда севильского аэропорта стояло такси с работающим на холостом ходу двигателем и включенным счетчиком. Пассажир в очках в тонкой металлической оправе, вглядевшись сквозь стеклянную стену аэровокзала, понял, что прибыл вовремя. Он увидел светловолосую девушку, помогающую Дэвиду Беккеру найти стул и сесть. Беккера, по-видимому, мучила боль. Он еще не знает, что такое настоящая боль, подумал человек в такси.
