## Water balloon not exploding in high-speed

## Calculus Based Physics Formulas: Mechanics

## Units in Physics (mechanical, electricity, magnetism, light and optics) including Si units.

This is a reference list with notes of all SI and derived units in physics. The notes provide a brief explanation of some of the more confusing elements, but be warned that the full explanation could take many pages, and may be explained elsewhere on this website.

Physics has only 5 base units. (Plus the SI units Mole and Candela, but these are rarely used in Physics.)

Name | Abbreviation (Symbol) | Standard Unit | Notes |

Name | Abbreviation (Symbol) | Standard Unit | Notes |

Length | l, x (for distances) | Meter (m) | A meter is defined as the distance light travels in a vacumm in of a second (in physics it is customary to use metric measurements although the basic principles apply if you to use feet instead of meters) |

Mass | m, M (when used with measurements in meters) | Kilogram (kg) | A kilogram is defined as the weight of a specific platinum-iridium cylinder |

Time | t | Second (s) | Seconds are defined as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of radiation from a cesium atom |

Temparature | T | Kelvin (K) | A degree kelvin is defined as of the distance between absolute 0 and the triple point of water |

Electric Current | I | Ampere (A) | An ampere is the amount of charge (C) passing through a surface per second, and is defined as the current which produces a force of newtons per meter of length between two infinitely long, perfectly straight and parallel conductors with an infinitely small cross section separated by one meter in a vacuum.. |

Each of these base units is defined on fundamental constants, and all other units are based on these five units. At times it useful to break longer equations down to their most basic units to determine if the equation makes sense. The most common combinations of these basic units are given their own symbols and names. These common units are as follows.
