FAQs on Units And Measurements

What are the 7 fundamental units?

The seven SI base units are the most basic physical quantities in the SI. The base units are the foundation of the International System of Units (Si), which is known as the modern metric system. These are
1) Length – meter (m)
2) Time – second (s)
3) Amount of substance – mole (mole)
4) Electric current – ampere (A)
5) Temperature – kelvin (K)
6) Luminous intensity – candela (cd)
7) Mass – kilogram (kg)

What is unit and measurement in physics?

A unit is a physical quantity upon which a numerical value can be assigned. For example, mass and time are physical quantities but cannot be directly measured in the laboratory. However, they can be measured in terms of their units, such as kilograms and seconds. If we know how to measure either one of them in terms of its units, we will be able to find out the value of the other quantity if we know its unit.

What are the important topics in units and Measurements Class 11?

The most important topics in units and Measurements Class 11 are Length, Mass and Time Measurements, Instruments Accuracy and Precision, Significant Figures, Dimensional Formulae and Equations, Physical Quantities (dimensions), Dimensional Analysis and Applications.
