This volume promotes order within the confusion of the many systems of units in existence. After establishing a clearer picture of science today, it examines the articulated language science by defining the units and their systems, and by offering a quick method to convert from one unit to another. Concise and to the point, it allows the reader to go from generalities to specifics-and vice versa-in a matter of minutes.
Concepts of quantification. Systems of units of measure in present use. Definition of units of measure in science and technology. Symbols and abbreviations of terms identifying the various units used in science and engineering. Conversion of units of measure.
