ADVANCED DYNAMICS — PHY 4241/5227 SOLUTIONS – SET 8 (24) SI Units. For up-to-date information visit the NIST website. 1. The second [s] is de±ned, so that the frequency of light between the two hyper±ne levels of the ground state of the cesium 132 Cs atom is exactly 9,192,631,770 cycles per second. 2. The meter [m[ is de±ned, so that the speed of light in vacuum is exactly 299,792,458 [m/s]. 3. A one kilogram weight is kept at S` evres near Paris. 4. 1 N = 1 kg

If two very long parallel wires one meter apart carry equal currents, the current in each is de±ned to be one Ampere [A] when the force per unit length on each wire is 2 × 10-7 [N/m]. 6. One Coulomb [C] is the charge ²owing through a cross-sectional area of a wire in one second when the current in the wire is one Ampere: C = A · s. 7. μ = 4 π × 10-7 N / A 2 . 8. ² = 8 . 85418782 × 10-12 C 2 / (N · m 2 )....
