Dimensions and Units Dimensions and Units - - 1 1 z To describe physical properties in quantitative terms we must select a system of units z In modern engineering practice we use either the Standard International (SI) system or the U. S. Customary System (USCS) z Mass, length, time and temperature are called independent dimensions SI: kilogram, meter, second, Kelvin USCS: slug, foot, second, o Rankine

Dimensions and Units Dimensions and Units - - 2 2 z Dependent dimensions can be expressed in terms of the independent dimensions, e. g., 1 Newton = (1 kg)(1 m/sec 2 ) = 1 kg•m/sec 2 1 pound = (1 slug)(1 ft/sec 2 ) = 1 slug•ft/sec 2 z To convert from one system of units to another, form dimensionless ratios from conversion tables… so that
