Before the International System (SI) of units came into use, there was great scope for errors when solving problems in mechanics. Professor H. Stroud, a physicist and chemist, devised a system for eliminating such errors during the late 1880s while teaching dynamics at Imperial College, London. This worksheet describes Professor Stroud's system for handling units and illustrates it with an example.
