The International System of Units (SI)

Description

 • The International System of Units (SI) has the meter, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela as its base units.
 • When used in conjunction with the UseSystem command, the SI system sets the following units for the given dimensions.

 Dimension Name Unit Name length meter mass kilogram time second force newton pressure pascal energy joule power watt electric capacitance farad electric charge coulomb electric conductance siemens magnetic inductance henry electric potential volt electric resistance ohm illuminance lux luminous flux lumen magnetic flux weber magnetic flux density tesla plane angle radian solid angle steradian

Notes:

 – To enter a unit in 2-D Math input, select the unit from the appropriate Units palette. If the unit you want is not there, select $\mathrm{unit}$ and then enter the unit.
 – When you edit a unit, double brackets appear around it.
