As we saw previously, the range of objects and phenomena studied in physics is immense. From the incredibly short lifetime of a nucleus to the age of Earth, from the tiny sizes of subnuclear particles to the vast distance to the edges of the known universe, from the force exerted by a jumping flea to the force between Earth and the Sun, there are enough factors of 10 to challenge the imagination of even the most experienced scientist. Giving numerical values for physical quantities and equations for physical principles allows us to understand nature much more deeply than qualitative descriptions alone. To comprehend these vast ranges, we must also have accepted units in which to express them. We shall find that even in the potentially mundane discussion of meters, kilograms, and seconds, a profound simplicity of nature appears: all physical quantities can be expressed as combinations of only seven base physical quantities.
SI Units, Symbols & Abbreviations
Standards and Units: Laws of physics are expressed in terms of physical quantities such as time, force, temperature, density and numerous other parameters. Physical quantities are often divided into fundamental and derived quantities. Derived quantities arc those whose definitions are based on other physical quantities, e. Fundamental quantities are not defined of other physical quantities, e. A scalar quantities is one which has only magnitude. A vector quantity has both magnitude and direction. Thus, when we say that the height of a tree is 20 metres or there is 5 litres of water in a bucket, we are dealing with scalar quantities.
For the most recent values of these constantly improving units, see Constants of Physics. The symbols of various units are international. This, however, is not true about the names of the units. In particular, UK English uses the French spelling. Consequently, the US terms meter , gram and liter become, respectively, metre , gramm and litre in the British Commonwealth. Throughout this document, I have used the US spelling. These prefixes are so far NOT defined by the SI system, but they are widely used when specifying amounts of information or that of an information storage capacity.

In physics, there are a large number of physical quantities we include while performing calculations. The symbols used for physical quantities are vastly different.
1.3 The Language of Physics: Physical Quantities and Units
To explain the natural phenomena we take the help of physics. Physics enable us to understand logically as well as mathematically all natural phenomena. All the laws of physics are generally expressed in terms of Physical Quantities. As an example, if you go to school or college from your home by walk, you need to know your speed and time. If you start to go at AM and reach at 10 AM, you spend 30 minutes by walk. Thus from the above example, time, speed and distance are Physical Quantities.
Physicists, like other scientists, make observations and ask basic questions. For example, how big is an object? How much mass does it have? How far did it travel? To answer these questions, they make measurements with various instruments e. The measurements of physical quantities are expressed in terms of units, which are standardized values. For example, the length of a race, which is a physical quantity, can be expressed in meters for sprinters or kilometers for long distance runners.

In handwriting, vectors are indicated by putting an arrow over the symbol: v. Vector magnitudes are italic and not bold, or with no arrow over them: v, a, F,..
(General Science) PHYSICS - Fundamental SI Units, SI Derived Units, Names and Symbols
Physics is a quantitative science, based on measurement of physical quantities. Certain physical quantities have been chosen as fundamental or base quantities. The fundamental quantities that are chosen are Length, Mass, Time, electric current, thermodynamic temperature, amount of substance, and luminous intensity. Each base quantity is defined in terms of a certain basic arbitrarily chosenbut properly standardised reference standard called unit such as metre,kilogram,second,ampere,kelvin,mole,and candela.
The chances are that any scientific measurement or quantity will be measured using SI Units - the International System of Units. There are many standard abbreviations and symbols used with these quantities. The SI, System International units, symbols and abbreviations are well defined and documented and provide the basis for the way most scientific quantities as well as many others are quoted and measured.
