1. Physical constants 1 1. PHYSICAL CONSTANTS Table 1.1. Reviewed 2007 by P.J. Mohr and B.N. Taylor (NIST). Based mainly on the “CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2006” by P.J. Mohr, B.N. Taylor, and D.B. Newell (to be published in Rev. Mod. Phys, and J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data). The last group of constants (beginning with the Fermi coupling constant) comes from the Particle Data Group. The ±gures in parentheses after the values give the 1-standard-deviation uncertainties in the last digits; the corresponding fractional uncertainties in parts per 10 9 (ppb) are given in the last column. This set of constants (aside from the last group) is recommended for international use by CODATA (the Committee on Data for Science and Technology). The full 2006 CODATA set of constants may be found at http://physics.nist.gov/constants.
