Physics is also known as the science of measurement. The quantities which are measurable in physics is known as physical quantity. Example: length, mass, time, force, etc. Physical quantities are divided into two groups:
Let us consider the velocity of a body. It is defined as the rate of change of displacement per unit time. It can be represented by the combination of length and time. Hence, it is a derived physical quantity. Other examples are Work, Energy, Power, etc.
Unit is the standard quantity used in the measurement. First, a standard is selected and the physical quantity is compared with the standard which is the process of measurement.
Plain angle – radian (rad)
Solid angle – steradian (sr)
The quantities which are measurable in physics is known as physical quantity.
Certain physical quantities are selected independent of each other. These are called fundamental physical quantities.
Kilogram is defined as the mass of the platinum-iridium cylinder kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measurements in France.
Second is defined as the 9192631770 periods of electromagnetic radiations emitted during a transition between two lower levels of Cesium-133.
Mole is the amount of substance that contains as much atoms/molecules as there are in 0.012 kg of C^{12}.
Ampere is that constant current which when maintained in 2 parallel conductors of the negligible cross section and infinite length separated in vacuum by a distance of 1m produces a force of 2 x 10^{-7}N per meter on either way.
Radian is the angle between two radii of a circle that cuts an arc equal to the length of the radius on the circumference.
Steradian is the angle subtended at the center of a sphere by an area equal to the square of the radius.
.The quantity having wrong unit is ______.
energy = Kgm/s
pressure = N/m^{2}
surface tension = N/m
stress/ strain = N/m^{2}
The unit of magnetic permeability is ______.
Am^{-1}

Hm^{-1}
H
Which one of the following is supplementary units?
Electric current – Ampere (A)
