Over centuries, several units have been devised to calculate exact measurement of different kinds. These units can be divided into two kinds—SI units and non SI units.

• SI Units: SI units refer to the set of physical units called the International System of Units which is used in the scientific world.
• Non-SI units: are all the other units that are commonly used. Knowledge of SI units is important since these are the units majorly used in scientific work and incorrect usage of scientific units can lead to incorrect results in most cases.

Standard Units of Measurement

Here is a list of SI units of quantification for you to study.

• MeterMeasure of Length
• KilogramMeasure of Mass
• SecondMeasure of Time
• AmpereMeasure of Electric Current
• KelvinMeasure of Thermodynamic Temperature
• MoleMeasure of Amount of Substance
• CandelaMeasure of Luminous Intensity
• Newton- Measure of Force and Weight
• Hertz– Measure of Frequency
