Both a number and a unit of defined size is required to describe physical quantity. 3 FUNDAMENTAL UNITS (Systeme International) All other units are derived from this system. Derived SI Units Quantity Definition of Quantity SI unit Area Length squared m 2 Volume Length cubed m 3 Density Mass per unit volume kg/m 3 Speed Distance traveled per unit time m/s Acceleration Speed changed per unit time m/s 2 Force Mass times acceleration of object kg * m/s 2 ( =newton, N) Pressure Force per unit area kg/(m 2 ) ( = pascal, Pa) Energy Force times distance traveled kg * m 2 /s 2 ( = joule, J) FYI..

Convert 29,141 feet into miles: Conversion Factors - II 1.61 km = 1 mi or 1 = 1.61 km mi Convert 5.519 miles in to kilometers: Conversions in the metric system are easy , as 1 km = 1000 m, 1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters(cm), and 1 cm = 10 millimeters(mm)...
